Planet Earth Is Blue and There's Nothing I Can Do

************** The Stars Look Very Different Today ***************
This is the challenge painting I did from Karin Juriks' Different Strokes From Different Folks blog. I decided to make it a double challenge by doing it in watercolor. I was listening to the Ziggy Stardust album while painting this piece when the idea came to me about having this fellow "floating in a tin can" high above planet Earth. We have seen this motif done before by a hand full of painters. The one that comes to my mind is the painting of the guitar player "Corky" by The Brothers Hildebrandt. 7.5'' x 6.25'' watercolor

I wonder how many other painters will use an open door?
