Prelude in Nebula on Yupo

The idea for this came to me one morning and I just had to try it! WetCanvas has a Sept challenge in the Watermedia forum called "music." I thought about painting an instrument. But an instrument would be difficult (at best!) on Yupo, and I've been itching to get a sheet of Yupo wet. My mind went to painting a nebula (something else that had been discussed on WetCanvas). The idea then grew to include some music notes and do something a bit abstract (nebulas certainly lend themselves to abstract!). I found some sheet music for the theme from 2001 A Space Odyssey and . . .wah lah!! Here it is. The music notes were done with a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and were by far the most difficult to get down (some smudging where my hand rested--it was MOST difficult to draw these lines while holding my hand in midair!!)
