This was my third painting in the series of art , “Nebula Art”. It was featured on the Facebook page of the Hubble Space Telescope in February 19th of 2016 . It is oil on canvas, 24 x 36 inches, painted in 2015. I loved painting this, mixing and blending the oils to try to capture the dark and light and translucency of the original Hubble image.
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 Go to the artist's portfolio
