NEOPHYTES OF GALACTIC ORACLE by AstroBoy1 NEOPHYTES OF GALACTIC ORACLE by AstroBoy1
"Neophytes Of The Galactic Oracle" by Michael C. Turner
Copyright 2008 ~ Galactic Visions Space Art"
Acrylic on beveled gallery wrap canvas ~ 48"X60" using traditional bristle brush techniques

A jetting/quasar galaxy, viewed along its galactic plane (edge on view), dominates this scene of an exotic galactic satellite cluster. A nomadic group of intergalactic asteroids, created from the collision of rogue planets pays homage to their new gravitational master, The Galactic Oracle," as "Neophytes” passing though the outer fringes of its outer sanctum . . . with time they shall be part of the galactic inner sanctum as the galaxy's gravitational incantations initiates them into a new realm . . .
(Please see my "Mysterious Galactic Legends" deviation[link] for another view of this galaxy . . . they are actually companion pieces even though the views are light years apart). "Neophytes" was used in conjunction with The Planetary Society and IAAA (International Association Of Astronomical Artists) space art exhibit in Pasadena California for the Mars Pathfinder Mission.

May All Your Visions Be Galactic Visions ~ Michael C. Turner

Greetings,

You are most kind. I am indeed delighted you enjoy this painting. It is a companion piece to my "Mystrious Galactic Legends." If you view the stellar background through the cavern mouth you shall see that this is actually a much closer and detailed view of the same area.

My best to you,
Michael C. Turner

Sweet! It looks like a cool looking entanglement of light in a supernova. I've really got to show my younger sister some of these. She really loves space images.

She doesn't have a DA account and she's way too young to get one. She's almost 13. But I certainly will send her the link to your gallery and get her to take a look.

Cool, it has a good, sharp contrast that relaly give sit a sense of energy (as one would hope to find in a Quasar ;p) and the colour choice is nice too 8-)

Greetings,

Thank you for the compliment and yes, a sense of energy is the theme for this scene with the Quasar galaxy as its central focus . . .
