The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

April 9 Horsehead Nebula

I asked Savannah what I should paint for the 100th day. She said, "I know exactly what you should paint; I just don't know what it's called," and disappeared into her room. She came back with a book called Galaxy, Exploring the Milky Way. She paged through and said, "This one." I suppose it's fitting to paint a nebula in the Orion molecular cloud complex, something I'll never see. But it broadens one's perspective to consider all the things "out there" that we'll never see.

  1. I thought this was a look at the inside of my stomach a few hours after I ate a Kwik Trip fish sandwitch on good friday..
    Congrats on your 100th picture. I have enjoyed the ride...


  2. Drop a camera down a stomach, call the image a nebula in a molecular cloud, who's to know the difference????
