RE-started: Carina Nebula


After my iron fiasco (and many expletives), I immediately started a new version. I had to re-pastel and re-paint "Starbirth: Carina Nebula", so this is a photo of version 2. You can see the original NASA/ESA Hubble Telescope photo HERE.

Next up is the quilting. Fun fun fun!

Looks GREAT!!!
Isn't it neat to get inspired by all those telescope shots!!!
About once a week I go and catch up on those photos - there is usually one I have to save for inspiration later!

I like it better than #1, too. Blended more. Great idea to do this series, Elle...

I had the same thoughts as gerrie and mary...this one looks so much more celestial.

This is just beautiful. Maybe you were just meant to do a version 2. P.S. I love telescope shots too! Jen

I agree... this is an excellent development. I can't wait to see the quilting. What a lucky sister!

Yep...what the others have said. I'm still sorry you had the trauma of scorching #1, but I now think it was meant to be because #2 is better!!

Maybe you can cut up the unscorched parts of #1 and use them in other pieces?

I love it! Definitely looks ethereal and misty like a nebula does.
