Pluto Unveiled
Oil, 12 x 16 inches

Painted to commemorate humanity's first detailed glimpse of Pluto and it's moon, Charon, made last year by the New Horizons spacecraft. It was an amazing accomplishment, and a momentous event to be alive for as the face of the dwarf planet became known to humans for the first time in history!

It takes light 4.6 hours to reach Pluto from Earth. To get a sense of just how far away that is, check out this great video by Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh. At nearest approach, Pluto is about the same distance as Neptune.

Last month I was very excited to announce that this painting has received the Best of Show award in the National Oil & Acrylic Painters' Society annual "Best of America" exhibition. Well, the December issue of the Artist's Magazine has been released and I can now tell you that the same painting has received an Honorable Mention in the Magazine's 30th Annual Art Competition in the figure and portrait category! I'm honored once again to be in the company of so many great artists. Go check out all the other great art in this issue on the news stands. You can see an excerpt of the magazine on my blog: robreyart.blogspot.com/#sthash…

Your gallery is so incredible, I don't understand how I haven't found it during 7 years on dA. Your paintings are so beautifully transcendent, I'm in awe. Keep creating :+devwatch::clap:

I just wanted to say I love your art! Especially the astronomy ones, they're gorgeous. Random note, I don't know if it's me but I feel you also use the same model in many works and that sort of adds a bit of mystery to your paintings, so that's a nice touch. Anyway, fantastic gallery, keep it up and thanks for sharing with us!
