Nebular Nook

This new painting, from an earlier study, has been accepted to show next month in the Oil Painters of America's annual National Juried Exhibition!

In the nebulous dust of deceased giants, new stars are born. Stretching out their new solar winds, these young stars carve out a space for themselves in the dust, just a few million years old.

How many human generations is a million years? It would be approximately 40,000 generations, yet homo sapiens has only existed for less than a third of that time, about 12,000 generations.
