“Do you realize that you have the most beautiful face,
Do you realize we’re floating in space,
Do you realize that happiness makes you cry,
Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die,
And instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round…”
— The Flaming Lips, Do You Realize

I’ve been painting some version or another of this little one since I was in high school. I recently did this tiny study of my little alien baby with some new iridescent paints and someone commissioned me to do a much larger version, so I am doing a lot of my own navel gazing while working on it. It’s a cozy, safe place for me to hide from the news. 16406519_1436493506381300_2878186006114542309_n
