The author's paintings of the cosmos are not merely painterly translations of astronomical photographs; rather they have structures revealing metaphors that relate cosmic realities to humankind. Cosmic themes and the techniques that articulate them reach their culmination in her painting "Crab Nebula," which is discussed in detail.
