Celestial Fire


Acrylic, Cloth and Paper on Canvas


This painting is inspired by the Hubble Telescope’s photographs of space. It is part of a series called Artistronomy: A Space Odyssey. This piece depicts the Orion Nebula and I chose a variety of textures to depict rolling dusk, clouds, and the formation of stars.

This piece is acrylic paint, paper, and cloth ribbon.
