About This Artwork: Dan has this crazy idea to go to the surface of the Sun so he can plant a flower there. He heard there weren’t any flowers growing there, so now he’s dead set on going there. I told him how hot it was there, so he feels that going at night will solve this problem.

Now, Dan doesn’t have wings, but he can fly. Well - he can hover anyway. So he is going to hover up to the Sun and plant a flower on the surface. He thinks this will turn him blue for a while.
