Summary Edit

A crop of "Downbelow"

From http://pyracanthasketch.blogspot.com/2014_06_01_archive.html Science fiction author C.J. Cherryh commissioned me to illustrate a scene from her book DOWNBELOW STATION with her main character Signy Mallory in a prominent place. I chose a scene at the beginning of the book where Mallory must keep order as a ship full of dying refugees docks at the station. The faces of Mallory and the accompanying stationmaster were taken from a still from the film STROMBOLI starring Ingrid Bergman. Bergman's face was modified slightly to look like Cherryh.

This painting was exhibited at Boskone 1982 and there won the "Guest of Honor's Choice" award, one of the few professional awards I have ever gotten. The Guest of Honor was Donald Wollheim, C.J. Cherryh's publisher.

"Downbelow" is acrylic on Masonite board, 15" x 10", February 1982
