TURQUOISE Challenge entry, Linda Clary

Acrylic on Canvas, 24”H x 48”W

I use turquoise in my art frequently for everything from the aurora borealis in a night sky to a pop of color in an abstract painting of mostly orange and brown earth tones.  This particular painting was inspired by a photo taken by the Hubble Space Telescope of the remains of a supernova in the Cassiopeia constellation. This color appears in many of the Hubble photos from space. Appropriately, perhaps, to the prehistoric Indian, Turquoise, worn on the body or used in ceremonies always signified the god of the sky alive in the earth.
