“The Sun, Moon and Stars” was a concept that lingered in the artist’s mind for nearly a year. In the spring of 1999 the image first materialized in the form of a “Thumbnail” sketch. From this brief study, Greg Mort constructed the desired arrangement using a teacup, saucer, spoon and a cut out crescent moon from bright yellow paper. That moon was then laid upon a shiny disc of black cardboard creating the illusion of liquid. By adding an antique astronomy book and a touch of starry lace; the Watercolor painting was born.
The original watercolor painting of "Sun, Moon and Stars" is in a private art collection. The overall image size of the limited edition four color lithograph is 17" x 18". It was printed on museum quality Mohawk Superfine eighty pound paper by the fine artisans of Westland Printers in Burtonsville, Maryland. Each piece is individually hand titled, numbered and signed by the artist. "Sun, Moon and Stars" was published in a limited edition of only four hundred fifty.
