Cosmic Conception ~ Immaculate Star ~ Lord Of Light
©2011 Michael C. Turner ~ Galactic Visions Space Art



From deep within the fertile womb of a star-rich nebula, a brilliant new-born star, a nova, illuminates the shores of an extrasolar planet in a remote galactic realm. This "Lord Of Light" makes all other stars dim in comparison as its intensive light beams become exponentially brighter. Dispelling the nebular dust clouds, which previously shrouded it from direct observation, it diminishes the light of its stellar siblings. Viewed from the misty surface of a super size terrestrial exoplanet, its cosmic beacon bathes the night sky and the planet's surface like a celestial lighthouse with an ethereal light, revealing a world with abundant liquid water, one of the prerequisites for life. Three of the primary planet's satellite companions traverse the nebular background creating a dramatic otherworldly scene that may be far more common than rare according to modern cosmological data. Sentient beings, across space and time, witnessing such a Cosmic Conception would assuredly proclaim this
Lord of Light an Immaculate Star.

"He Determines The Number Of Stars And Calls Them Each By Name." Psalm 147:4 (NIV)

Season's Greetings My Friend,

I sincerely appreciate your kind comment. Yes,"Oh Holy Night" does indeed compliment the mood in this painting. Incidentally, I do listen to music while creating my paintings. I feel a painting's atmosphere and mood are somewhat influenced by the same. Interestingly, "Oh Holy Night" was among the instrumental pieces I listened to while working on this painting as was one of my favourites, "Silent Night, Holy Night." . I don't generally (with some exceptions) listen to vocals while painting as they can be distracting. One particular "space music" composer/musician which I listen to is John Serrie (listed under New Age Music, available from Amazon.Com and some of his compositions are on YouTube. I have met him and attended his live performances. I find his compositions most inspiring. He has several Christmas related releases as well and I most particularly listened to those while creating "Cosmic Conception~Immaculate Star~Lord Of Light. One vocal I did listen to entitled "Bethlehem's Star," and beautifully performed by Evie (Tornquist) Karlsson, perhaps had the greatest influence on this year's and my 2009 and 2010 "Christmas In The Stars" Christmas card paintings. I have met Evie and attended her live performances as well. She is a wondrously unique and gifted American/Scandinavian Inspirational/Gospel singer. Her Christmas releases are outstanding. You most certainly should listen to her version of "Oh Holy Night." Her Christmas vocals have been a central part of my "Christmas In The Stars" Christmas musical experience and, along with various space music instrumentals, influenced the atmosphere/mood of my paintings. Evie's music and performances are on YouTube as well. Some of her music is available on Amazon.Com. (She performed mostly in the mid 1970's's to early 1980's although, she released "Bethlehem's Star" only three years ago. I feel you would truly enjoy both John Serrie's captivating electronic instrumentals and Evie's inspired vocals.


May The Immaculate Star, Jesus Christ, The Lord Of Light Illuminate You and Yours This Christmas And Eternally . . .

Michael C. Turner

Hey thank you for the tip on the new age artists. I have a few good ambient ones I listen to when painting myself.

Brian Eno-Apollo Atmospheres, + Ambient series.
Matthew Florianz
Biosphere
Aphex Twin
Tom Heasley, he's from the USA and produced an album made up of sounds from the Tuba, Digeridoo and Choir vocals. He only has no more than 3 albums, the best being Desert Triptych-titles like 29 Palms, Joshua Tree. This was weird because only the year before I travelled to The Joshua Tree National park and loved it! So everytime I listen to his music it takes me back to my Joshua Tree travels. His work is so haunting and each track lasts approx 20 min each. here is the link [link]

Kind Regards

Greetings,

Yes it is traditional. I did make slight adjustments to lighting,contrast and colour to approximate the original painting. It is a challenge photograph an canvas painting without glares and colour shifting therefore, I usually make such minor adjustments to a photographic image of the original painting prior to posting. This was created on a relatively large stretched, very fine, linen canvas 36 x 60 inches. I usually paint smoothly using bristle brushes, acrylic and gels to avoid 3-D paint/canvas artifacts. Sometimes these are desirable however, they don't look very refined for space art when you want a more realistic appearance. I will share with you that I generally expend hundreds of hours creating large paintings of the size and detail. I realize digital aartists can closely simulate this in far less time.

Best regards,
Michael C. Turner
