Cosmic Trinity ~ Divine Star
©2012 Michael C. Turner ~ Galactic Visions Space Art

A rare alignment of stars and their host of celestial bodies create an inspirational iconic vista in a multiple star system located in one of the outer arms of a remote spiral galaxy. Three of the companion stars/suns align with the fourth primary star/sun creating a dual triangular visual configuration as the primary star appears to provide unity of the three companion stars as well as manifest its intensity to the terrestrial class planet in the foreground.

The Cosmos is filled with wonders beyond imagination. Since ancient times the night sky has inspired innumerable minds to ponder the mysteries of the Cosmos. Inevitably, sentient beings must leave the terrestrial home cradle to explore distant celestial frontiers. Celestial events were often regarded as heralds of divine interaction with the mortal world. Every ancient civilization created myths and legends to relate such Cosmic events to human history through the spoken and/or written word. The ancient Hebrew people were closely linked with nature and their religious literature is filled with accounts of God speaking to humans through iconic natural terrestrial and celestial events. The most notable celestial event, The Star Of Bethlehem (The Christmas Star), herald the birth of the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ. Ancient learned astrologers or astronomers called Magi or Wise men charted and followed this celestial messenger to Bethlehem so that they might worship this divine star, the child of prophecy, the newborn King of the Jews, Jesus Christ. The birth of Jesus Christ was unique if for no other reason than in no other accounts of any civilization has a divine birth commanded such global attention throughout the millennia. More significantly, it chronicles God, the Creator Father, transcending the spiritual world to become mortal flesh in Christ, The Son, in the physical world. This was indeed the Divine Cosmic Trinity of God The Father, Christ The Son and the manifestation of The Holy Spirit.

Cosmic Trinity ~ Divine Star
Copyright 2012 Michael C. Turner

Below is the inside verse of this year's Christmas card.

Across Cosmic realms of space and time,
your Divine Star does shine.

Dispersing the darkness, dispelling the night,
with love divine and not with might.

Your infinite mind conceived a plan sublime,
a star to show your mind divine.

A cosmic message for each mortal race,
to seek your love and behold your divine face.

Star Divine, Jesus Christ, Conceived In Eternity,
Divine Star Manifesting Your Cosmic Trinity . . .

May The Divine Star, Jesus Christ,
Manifest Within You The Cosmic Trinity.

Linda & Michael Turner

[link] Each year I select one of my paintings to use on the cover of my "Christmas in the Stars" Christmas Card series which I began in 1991. I realize that everyone may not appreciate space art in this context however, I trust you shall still enjoy the paintings for what they depict scientifically if not spiritually . . . )

My friend that is so beutiful. What traditional methods did you use, any airbrush? or was that light applied dry brushing for the star glow?

Greetings My Friend,

Thank you most kindly for your comment and for including "Cosmic Trinity ~ Divine Star" in your favourites. I do not use the airbrush for any of my art. I used a cobination of dry brushing and glazing to create the effects on a very fine linen canvas (36" x 60"). I conditioned the canvas first with several smooth coats of acrylic. You can only detect the canvas texture at very close range from a lighted side angle. As you know, viewed in person such texture is esthetic however, the same effect isn't true when photographed. I did adjust the image lighting and contrast to approximate how the painting looks when properly lit and viewed directly.

Greetings Dipti,

Thank you for the link to your beautiful and inspiring music compositions. Yes, I agree, your musical compositions correlate with my space art remarkably well. Do you have a compilation album? I would love to listen to your music while I paint for I am positive it would be most inspirational.
