Artist Reply: Thank you. This is my most popular painting. I regret selling it so cheap but I really needed the money at the time. Oh,well. I'm almost done with "In the Court of the Crimson King". That also has some nebulae in it, as well.
Artist Reply: Thanks, Steve, I really appreciate that. "Nursery" refers to the nebulas, which scientists refer to as "star nurseries" because this is where stars are born. Stars in turn, form planets and on this planet life in turn, has been born in the form of plants, etc. like the garden or 'nursery' at the bottom.
