Space Art Gallery – Frank Hettick View of Home

View of Home by Frank Hettick

View of Home: Painted in 2005, this space-farer is gazing towards – what? Perhaps his base of operations is just out of sight in the low-lands behind the ridge – or maybe he sees only the emptiness of the landscape as he searches for his ship? Or is he searching the skies for a glimpse of the planet that he – or his ancestors – may have migrated from years (or centuries) earlier?

The working title was Earth Remembered but this restricted the space-person to be standing on Mars – searching the rust-colored skies for Earth – so I changed the title to ‘’View of Home’ – which I feel opens wide the possibility of ‘home’ being totally somewhere else perhaps even in another galaxy!
