Artist Notes: The Orion Nebula is based on a NASA photo of The Orion Nebula, named for the Galaxy of which the nebula is a part. This is an unimaginably huge part of the universe where stars are being born. It invoked my love of space, free brush strokes, color, and form; and allowed me the joy of the abstract gesture within a framework of realism. The painting is acrylic on stretched canvas on heavy duty stretchers, with painted sides. A frame is not necessary.
