Thank-you, Alisa!

Really nice work... and reflections! Please, add it to "Fine Art Discussions" Page... Thank you for your participation. So glad you like it. Best wishes, Alisa

Thanks, Gwyn! This is still my favorite piece. :)

Fantastic work and congrats on your work being published! vote/fav

UPDATE: This little world was recently published in the Mar/Apr 2012 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine!

Thank-you, Larry!

awesome nikki

Thank-you, Shannon! I'd love to see your wee world when it is finished!

Great artwork Nikki. Also,LOVED your article in Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine on how to create these wee worlds. I got CPS yesterday, and will try to create a wee world today!

Thank-you, Adel!

Wonderful work....

Thanks for featuring this little planet in the group Stretching The Envelope!

Thank-you, Ausra! Who knows? For me, these represent visions of spreading out to explore the universe, what we will discover so far from home and what we will learn about ourselves and our place in the scheme of things. Maybe everything will be wildly different. Maybe we will repeat all of the old mistakes again. (We'll probably invent new ones.) The universe is a wide place full of interesting nooks and crannies...

I really like your approach. The flower like globe with skyscrapers really stands out from the background and from all the usual cityscapes. Does this particular image mean that Earth has turned into the Red Giant (yet another big star in the Universe)? :-)

Thank-you for featuring this piece, Larysa! It is one of my favorites.

Thank-you for featuring this piece, Krista! It is one of my personal favorites.

Nice work :D

Beyond fantastic, Nikki! You've really got a knack for these 'wee worlds'.

Thanks, Wendy! :)

Artist's Description

The planet Wee Manhattan lies deep within the Carina Nebula, giving the night sky its distinctive and remarkable appearance. A metropolitan home to lovers and dreamers, it has a thriving tourist economy and mines the nearby gas clouds for exotic particles. There is currently a fifteen year wait list for tourist visas so we encourage you to apply today. ------------------------------------ This is an artistic rendition of the more photo-realistic Wee Manhattan Planet, also found here in my galleries. The dark, vibrant colors and bold paint strokes make this a stunning wall art piece, sure to start a conversation! ------------------------------------ This piece was published in the Mar/Apr 2012 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine! ------------------------------------ More wee planets straight from the imagination of artist Nikki Smith can be seen at and are available to purchase as framed fine art prints or on stretched canvas.
