The Orion Nebula is part of my "Nebulas" series. It is based on a NASA photo of The Orion Nebula, 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. It invoked my love of space, free brush strokes, color, and form; and allowed me the joy of the abstract gesture within a framework of realism.
The 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. It is signed and dated on the back. 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.
