GALACTIC PATHWAYS by AstroBoy1 GALACTIC PATHWAYS by AstroBoy1
Galactic Pathways
©2012 Michael C. Turner
Galactic Visions Space Art
Acrylic on stretched canvas 48 x60 "

A colossal jetting spiral galaxy (a quasar) dominates a multi-galaxy filled sky as it rises above the horizon of a moon orbiting a ringed "super-earth" exo-galactic-planet. An array of satellite galaxies (spiral, elliptical, barred, globular, and irregular) creates a starry backdrop along with myriad other stellar companions. Such "Galactic Pathways" beckon intergalactic travelers across the Cosmos to boldly go where only imaginative minds dare go . . .

Extended descriptor: The depicted galaxy is actually a super-quasar or bipolar jetting galaxy. Quasars are extragalactic phenomena emitting immense amounts of energy in the form of light, infrared radiation, etc, from a super massive/dense source. This energy source is a super-massive black hole located in the centre of the galaxy.

*"Galactic Pathways is the second of my spacescape paintings to recieve a Daily Deviation. The first was "Mysterious Galactic Legends." fav.me/d1ltiot


* I wish to thank Ali (Casperium)casperium.deviantart.com/ for her kind recommendation of "Galactic Pathways" for a Daily Deviation. I am indeed most honored for she maintains the highest standards on Deviant Art. I am also most grateful to everyone who has viewed, favored, and/or commented on this painting. It was created over the past year as I worked on various paintings and I now know that my labor of love was well worth the time expended.

Warmest regards,
Michael C. Turner

I have had requests for prints on this painting and have now added it to my wallpaper gallery.fav.me/d4r2g9e
