"Solar System", and Happy Holidays!

Jeffrey Hayes: Solar System
“Solar System” • Oil on Canvas • 16 x 32 inches (41 x 81 cm) • 2013

First, I'd like to wish everybody a warm, safe, and happy holiday season, and send my best wishes for 2014!

A note about this piece; it's called "Solar System", and each marble does indeed correspond to a planet, though not in the proper order. From left to right, they are: Neptune, Earth, Saturn, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, and Uranus. The Sun is represented by the light bulb seen reflected in the steel marbles, and sadly Pluto is no longer a member of the club. The painting is available at the Powers Gallery in Acton, MA.
