Galaxy was very enjoyable and relaxing to paint. I enjoy the spontaneous application of color and blending on the canvas. Most enjoyable is the surprise when it's completed. It feels like I am creating my own universe each time I paint one. I used to paint these cosmic landscapes much larger. My entire arm would be in motion over the canvas. It's quite a different experience painting them on small canvases...only my hand is moving...

Marina, Beautiful painting. This does look as though it was enjoyable to paint. The colors transition so nicely from one to the other.
