The Orion and Swan Nebulas are each based on a NASA photo. The Orion Nebula is named for the galaxy of which the nebula is a part. This is an unimaginably huge part of the universe where stars are being born. The Swan Nebula has within it an ocean of glowing hydrogen gas and small amounts of other elements such as oxygen and sulfur within the Swan Nebula. These paintings invoked my love of space, free brush strokes, color, and form; they allowed me the joy of the abstract gesture within a framework of realism.
Each painting is 16 inches high by 20 inches wide, acrylic on stretched canvas, on heavy duty stretchers, with painted sides; a frame is not necessary. Each is signed and dated on the back. Priced separately, each is $1,000. Sold as a pair they are $1,900. I send a letter of provenance which increases the value of the work. All my artwork is copyrighted by Eleanor Gilpatrick. Copyright is nontransferable through the purchase of artwork.
Hello!! I am a contemporary realist painter of landscapes, people, still lifes, and abstracts that reflect my love of beauty and the way I see the world. Some paintings deal with peace issues; some are about Climate Change; many have edgy compositions. I never sell prints of my artwork. So, see my descriptions to find out about each piece. Please write to me if you have any questions.
