Warp Galaxy watercolor painting (10 x 14) was done for an Art Right Now Meetup group I belong to. The word for the month's creative challenge was 'warp'. Although it was a difficult subject for us all in the group, there were lots of very interesting work presented at our meeting. Today's February challenge (Artists Way) phrase is 'just for fun' so I worked on another painting last night and decided to post this to cover both challenges....I had to use multiple layers of paint to get the very dark background. (It is from a NASA photo taken of the galaxy, which is what happens when one galaxy collides with another.)
Our passionate preoccupation with the sky, the stars, and a God somewhere in outer space is a homing impulse. We are drawn back to where we came from.
