In space there is no up or down, and gravity acts in all directions depending on the mass that is present. When it comes to nebulae, gas moves but not usually because gravity pulls it in one way or another. Nebula gas and dust gets pushed around by pressure from the light and particle "winds" of stars. Nevertheless in this composition I pretend that glowing gas can flow like water, "downhill" in space. Hence the title, "Gasfall."

No, this is not a digital composition. "Gasfall" is acrylic on illustration board, 7" x 10", February 1990.
