One that had to be done

The theme for November in one of my online groups was Cosmos.  I knew immediately what I wanted to do...but my life was in turmoil and chaos and didn't calm down until just this week. I'm now looking at current deadlines and putting on my thinking cap. (Some of them are quite a challenge BTW!!!) But while I'm starting over fresh for 2014 in this one group (I was WAY too far behind to ever catch up) I just HAD to do this one.  It was originally planned for a much larger piece but doing it in 12" X 12" just seemed to be what the doctor ordered since the larger one had its beginning a few years ago and then went nowhere.

So...here it is....Deep Space.  It was inspired by a Hubble photograph of the Orion Nebula. I just love the colors and found I could make just what I wanted with hand-dyed cheesecloth!!


I'm linking this post to Nina Marie's Off The Wall Friday!

I have a lot of my own hand dyed cheesecloth. I adore it! I love your idea of the nebula. It really looks like it!

Lovely - when I saw the little thump picture over at "Off the wall Friday" I thought, hm, this looks like a cosmic nebula to me ?

Great use of hand dyed cheesecloth.

Thanks, Linda. It is amazing how saturated they get with color. And so many uses!
