The Eagle And Lagoon Nebulas, A Paired Set Of Space Landscapes

by Egilpatr

The Eagle and Lagoon Nebulas are each based on a NASA photo. The Eagle Nebula is shown by NASA as a vertical image, but I see the eagle when I place the image horizontally, and that is how I painted it. I am in love with the motion. The nebula is in the constellation Serpens, a young, open cluster of a few thousand stars that were formed from a giant molecular cloud. They are still loosely bound to each other by gravitation, and active star formation is still going on.

The Lagoon Nebula is in the southern constellation Sagittarius; it can be seen with the naked eye or binoculars. It is considered to be among the finest and brightest star-forming regions in the sky. A huge cloud of interstellar matter, it is undergoing active star formation. The central parts are extremely bright; and it is so large that this painting represents only a small part of the 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.
