Life on Mobius Strips , The painting is finished

Life is a theme of art from time immemorial. It will continue to be so in a foreseeable future. Life may be lived at multiple planes if we are imaginative. But what happens is, most people live it on a single plane, not being able to explore all those possibilities and wonder at all those marvels. It moves as if on a Mobius strip which has only one plane. The background of this painting is inspired by a Hubble photograph from NASA. It shows gas pillars in the Eagle Nebula. The pillars are several light years in length. It is capable of invoking a gasp of wonder from any reasonable, thinking human being.

This painting is titled "Life on Mobius Strips"
