Keith Birdsong: Warriors for the Working Day

Original Cover Illustration for #6 in the Starcruiser Shenandoah series of science fiction novels by Roland J. Green, published by Roc/Ace 1994.  Handpainted in acrylic and mixed media on board with an image area of 19" x  28.5" and comes handsomely custom framed and double matted, under plexi, by the previous owner to 25.5" x 37"   A large and visually stunning sci-fi classic composition and signed at the lower left.  I have never had the priviledge of handling a painting by Keith before, who regrettably died in 2019....and this one is an excellent example.  Birdsong was a Muscogee Creek-Cherokee illustrator, self-taught, and perhaps best known for illustrating covers of Star Trek novels - he was the primary Star Trek artist for licensed products and books for over a decade - but this painting shows the wider range of his skills.  (copy of the paperback shown in photos comes with the purchase)
