(If you read this post earlier, I've changed the name from "Galaxy" to "Nebula.")

I've been experimenting with gold leaf and acrylics. I didn't have a outer space in mind when I made this painting, but it kind of reminds me of pictures I've seen at the planetarium or from Hubble. 
I don't suppose paintings have to have names...... but I'm calling this one "Nebula."

It is acrylic and gold leaf on a 16x20 canvas.

It has a gold sheen that changes how it looks from different directions and different lighting. 

Here it is hanging up in our bonus room.

Very interesting abstract art. I like it. I've not tried this form of art yet. I am more into improving my realism. I do love your still lifes.
