The inspiration for this oil painting came from the influence of Palo Soleri, an Italian-American architect, who designed Acrosanti in Arizona and other mega structures. The painting is a vision of a flight over the domed city, Omnia, that houses 55,000 people and other earthlings. The self-sufficient Omnia is an artistic vision of future cities where space is efficiently utilized to allow more room for nature. The city’s airport and anaerobic digesters (sewage recycling [pink and yellow circles]) are located outside the city at the bottom of the painting, not too far from Fish Lake. The city is located near an ocean (upper right). This painting can be hung in any direction.
The painting was started in 1975 (last century), and was last painted on in April 2013 (38 years) and is a dedication to Soleri, who went through the doors beyond the grave on April 9, 2013.
