NASA’s New Horizons Probe flew by the planet Pluto on July 14, 2015 and is beaming back jaw dropping images! I became a bit of a space nut after working at the Kennedy Space Center back when space shuttle launches were happening. Pluto has a total of five moons, and they all had to be named for characters of the underworld in Greek or Roman mythology. This painting depicts my interpretation of Charon, Styx and Hydra. The piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Anne

Born in New York and raised in Connecticut, Anne Dosso-Powell is the daughter of a jazz drummer and the granddaughter of a Radio City Music Hall conductor. The result: art and music have always been at the forefront of her academic and creative endeavors. Anne’s emotionally driven paintings use color, texture, transparency and distortion to express a spectrum of feelings and concepts. Embracing a variance of styles, her work fluctuates between abstract expressionism to delicate impressionistic realism. She also uses exaggeration, and some primitivism in her work. Most of her paintings have a combination of styles, best described as an improvisation if you will.
