“Looking Back 13 Million Years”

Acrylic on paper , 8 1/2 x 11 inches. I painted this while on a cruise on the Viking Orion. I had just the minimum amount of paints and paint pens, and was quickly running out of white paint. I was going to donate it to the ship but liked it so much I decided to keep it. Of course this is the JWST image of the Carina Nebula.

Born in 1944 in Washington, D.C., I have painted and sculpted most of my life. At 74 years of age, I feel I am at my most creative time of life. I started painting a series of "Nebula Art" in 2015 after seeing the Hubble Space Telescope images. I find so much joy in attempting to capture these beautiful photographs. I live now in Naples, Florida, and have 18 completed paintings so far and will continue to paint as long as I am able. I studied art and sculpture at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C.; painting and sculpture at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Va. I have taken art classes in my community of Pelican Bay. Exhibition include Swiss Embassy, Torpedo Factory, Pelican Bay Community Center, Naples Art Association and Rookery Bay
