This extra-large acrylic painting of "deep sky object", Butterfly Nebula, was done on a canvas which was stretched over a thick MDF board consequently, it is robust and weigh very heavy (approximately 7 Kg. ) Initially the canvas was gessoed and many layers of acrylic paint was laid The painting was thoroughly dried and varnished to prolong its life. The painting is not meant to be an accurate illustration of the astronomical object which can be viewed through a powerful telescope . Butterfly Nebula ( also called Bug Nebula) is a planetary nebula, gas flows away from the central star in two directions forming wings. It is found in the scorpius constellation of the zodiac. Planetary nebula originates when red giant star become unstable at the end of its life ("dies") and sheds its outer gaseous material into the space. This painting has recently been exhibited to the public by Bury Art Gallery and Museum ( January 2019). Some of the comments by the viewers were : "conveys impression of deep space, stars,and vivid nebulae" "expressive,random, inspirational,colourful and dark at the same time" " like abstract representation": "celestial glow": etc.
