The Lionfish Nebula

Posted Feb 27, 2009, 9:26:45 PM

A painting I did last year -- one of four in a series.  WHy fish and space?  Well, if you've ever looked at cosmic gas clouds and nebulae that they remind me of coral reefs and strange and beautiful marine life that lives there, and the vast endlessness of space reminds me of the vast bottomless depths of the ocean.  Both landscapes are so foreign and barren.   I'm not as happy as with the other two as I am with this one -- I might post them if Im asked.
