SPACE CLASSIC by AstroBoy1 SPACE CLASSIC by AstroBoy1
Space Classic
©2011 Michael C. Turner ~ Galactic Visions Space Art
Acrylic on stretched canvas (36 X 48") using traditional bristle brush techniques

A ringed extra solar planet (exoplanet) as viewed from the icy surface of its companion in a remote galaxy. This scene is reminiscent of some of the early space art of Chesley Bonestell who was a pioneer of astronomical and space art in the 20th century. His art influenced many space artists with stunning depictions of space decades before the space program. This painting is dedicated in honor of and gratitude to Chesley Bonestell for the positive influence he had, and continues to have, on inquiring minds seeking the wonderment of the Cosmos and all its myriad mysteries . . .
