About the Painting: Carol Heyer’s wonderful commemorative painting features an image of Mr. Bradbury based on a photograph of him at the age of three. The artist placed the young Ray standing on Earth, with this feet in the clouds. Books emanate from the Earth/Thousand Oaks Library and float past the moon, planets and out into “the great learning library of the universe.” Ray cradles Mars in his hands to illustrate his quotation that frames the painting and also to represent one of his most popular books and the artist’s favorite, THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES.
