The author has been painting on spheres with a six-point perspective since 1969. He has painted over 100 spheres ranging in size from 7 inches to 7½ feet in diameter. Most of these globes hang and turn from ceiling motors. In this paper the author explains his logic of moving from a traditional flat straight-line perspective (one- to three-point perspectives), to a flat curved-line perspective (four- and five-point perspectives), to a spherical perspective where each line looks straight or curved depending on its location in relation to the observer Grids assist greatly in showing the logic of moving from the traditional perspective to this new dimension on the spherical canvas.
