Arthur C. Clarke-Your Painting

Posted by Sharon Cramer Sceper on 02/15/2017

Dear Greg, I hope my memory serves me correctly. "2001-A Space Odyssey" movie came out. Arthur C. Clarke visited So.Cal for a TV show with a public audience. I recall that you painted a picture from a major scene of the Universe in that movie, and you presented it to Arthur C. Clarke. Again, as I recall, he planned to take it to his home in Asia and hang it on the wall. I was always so proud to have known you at Pershing, and so very pleased for you to have your artwork treasured by Arthur C. Clarke. Again, I do hope my memory serves me correctly. You have certainly had an amazing career!

How nice to hear from you, Sharon! We had a few classes together at Crawford, including English, if I'm not mistaken. I don't know what happened to the painting I presented to Arthur, but in later years, got to correspond frequently with him, and invited him to join the EMP/Science Fiction Museum here in Seattle, though, alas, he could not travel to see it. Hope all is well with you!
