Phaedra II-the Arrival by Tolkyes Phaedra II-the Arrival by Tolkyes
Oil on canvas. 18"x24".

After listening to the 'Phaedra' album by Tangerine Dream, I like to listen to 'The Planets' symphony by Gustav Holst, particularly, "Neptune". It is serene yet feels like you are approaching something magical.
After being in the frozen wasteland sounding 'Phaedra', I like to imagine that I and along with perhaps some friends, are now approaching a large, wel-lit house with an observatory built into it, on a hill. We know that we will have comfort from the cold there.

So, SO wonderful. And I love the little tale accompanying it. "Neptune" is beautiful yes, although I prefer "Venus" or "Uranus."

Thank you. "The Planets" symphony by Holst is probably my favorite classical album that I have.
