Starshowers occur every year during the summer solstice.

This cosmic event coincides with the annual migration

of elenoceros up Mount Monolith.

"The idea for Starshower Solstice came from a watercolor card I was making for my wife. I thought it would make a good larger painting, and immediately started working on a sketch (I never did finish the card for my wife). In the larger version I added the arch, cave, lake, waterfall, river, stonehenge, and the creatures. The painting became even more detailed as I worked on it. I painted the sculptures in the rocks from my imagination, without any sketches. The elenoceros, a six legged cross between an elephant and a rhinoceros, was from an earlier sketch. Starshower Solstice was the first painting I made using fluid acrylics. It is the painting I spent the most time on, approximately 800 hours."
