"Our new picture of cosmology is that we live in a universe dominated by 'nothing'.  The largest energy in the universe-70% of the energy in the universe resides in empty space, and we don't have the slightest idea why its there."
- Dr. Lawrence Krauss

"If you asked: what would be the characteristics of a universe that was created from nothing (without god), it would have precisely the characteristics we see today.  Does that prove that god doesn't exist? No, it just makes god unnecessary."

This picture was painted from nothing, in roughly 12 hours while I listened to a lot of interesting lectures on physics, including Dr. Lawrence Krauss' famous lecture "A Universe From Nothing".  This is the most fascinating information I have ever heard.  I have watched it at least a dozen times in the last year.

Thanks for viewing.  The purpose of my artwork is to inspire people about science and astronomy, and to incite them to learn about our universe and its grand beauty.  Prints are available for this piece.  See the right toolbar for the different types of prints.  I have had a lot of people tell me they liked the Wrapped Canvas more than any other framed print.

A video tutorial is available from the creation of this painting.

Dear CosmicSpark, wow..... this is so beautiful. And it seems vary realistic. It reminds me of pictures I've seen on astronomy programs. That is NEAT! I'm afraid I disagree about God not being necessary. I believe God created all of existence in a way the he himself could not be proven to exist. He asked us to have faith. There is no faith if there is PROOF. Aside from that disagreement I must write that this is a AWESOME picture! Well done!
