Long Ago and Far Away...


I couldn't help thinking and seeing those giant words "in a galaxy far, far away" (Star Wars) when I saw the prompt for The Three Muses challenge this week. You can't
really go further back or farther away than space! I layered a spiral galaxy onto a black canvas and used gradient coloring for depth. I know that time doesn't exist in space but I added the image of the old clock to represent looking back in time (as everything we see in space is from the past) through its portal, and the human face represents consciousness but not yet fully formed.

  1. Ah yes, me too - I can hear the dramatic theme music right now as the text fades away off the screen! I haven't made my art yet. I had to force myself to catch up on some boring admin tonight instead. There's definitely a touch of the Jedi about your piece! Very clever! May the force be with you...

  2. The "Force" WAS with you when you created this gorgeous galaxy in space! Stunning, Lori. Layering the galaxy over a black canvas really gives this piece depth. Hugs, Terri xoxo
