The Cone and Fox Fur Nebula by amyhooton The Cone and Fox Fur Nebula by amyhooton
EDIT: I'm such a ditsy new mummy. I had forgotten the name of the nebula that inspired me to paint this - and just found it again online :w00t: www.weatherandsky.com/p1015296…

I painted this while I was pregnant, but only just finished it with a few layers of varnish recently.
Its a very big canvas painting 100cm x 76cm
Acrylic Ink and mixed media.

A few years ago I photographed this target with a friend of mine and today just did a quick google search to see what newer versions were out there and I came across your art work and some how I felt a connection to it and now I know why!!! I think your link was referring to our image .. I think!! The link is broken since I re-did the website sometime after your post but here is the proper link. www.weatherandsky.com/p1015296… I am going to link your beautiful rendition from that page when I get the chance.
