Orion Nebula

This painting draws its inspiration from a Hubble telescope picture of the Orion Nebula. While I was painting it I was listening to some tapes of essays and speeches by Steven Hawking. I added word and phrases from the tapes with gold ink. Although I don't understand a lot of physics and mathematics, I am so thankful for the people who do. They have made it possible for me to see farther into the universe as I search for that place where science, religion and art all come together.
