MYSTERIOUS GALACTIC LEGENDS by AstroBoy1 MYSTERIOUS GALACTIC LEGENDS by AstroBoy1
Mysterious Galactic Legends" by Michael C. Turner
2008/2009 ~ Galactic Visions Space Art
Acrylic on stretched canvas using traditional bristle brush techniques ~ 30"X 40"

A neophyte galaxy, viewed nearly edge-on, from the misty mouth of a lunar cavern creates (with a bit of imagination) an illusion of fire jetting from the open mouth of a dragon. Cave formations, silhouetted against the illuminated cavern opening and the galactic background seem like cloaked figures paying homage to a galactic oracle as another satellite moon transits the plane of the galaxy just above and to the left of an Earth like-planet. This scene depicts one of myriad mysterious galactic vistas which might possibly stimulate legends of galactic proportions for sentient beings witnessing such galactic phenomena across the universe.

(Please see the companion piece [link] "Neophytes Of The Galactic Oracle." The views are light years apart however; you shall notice that the dragon's fiery breath, the galaxy seen here, is the same one as in "Neophytes of the Galactic Oracle. I have moved the view many light years closer in space to the galaxy.)

("Mysterious Galactic Legends" is #4 in my Christmas in the Stars limited edition card series. [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 . . . )
