Photo of the Day
The Hourglass Nebula, formally known as MyCn18, a young nebula located 8,000 light years away from Earth. This picture was taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, and was composed from three separate images taken in the light of ionized nitrogen (represented by red), hydrogen (green), and doubly-ionized oxygen (blue).
This nebula is also known as the cover to Pearl Jam's 2000 album, Binaural. I played that CD endlessly while creating my "watercolor on canvas" paintings, so I would probably agree that the music was an influence on my art.
