Spock's Red Matter Ship

It's typical for my imagination to make up stories that appeal to my science fiction psyche. I had painted a very small piece entitled, "Red Mobile" and imagined it as a sort of flying rig. Who knows what a rig in the sky does, but Isaac Asimov would, so there I was, thinking about the things that only happen in the future (my imagination.) Anyway, as I finished this new larger piece, I decided it was going to be about flying things, again... Then, one of the great icons of science fiction and also a very talented artist, Leonard Nimoy passed away yesterday. Sigh. I really loved him, I was a huge fan of his Mr. Spock and also of his photography and his great intellect and spirit. So, I am dedicating this piece to him, renaming the piece after Spock's Red Matter ship. Three of them, a magical number, fly together now. Farewell, friend. RIP Mr. Nimoy, you have always been and shall always be, remembered.
