Wondrous Star How Brightly You Shine ...
Glorious Light, So Bright ... So Divine.
Star Of Wonder, Heaven's Gift Unfold ...
Your Light Reveals God's Word Foretold.
The Promised Messiah ... The King Of Kings ...
The Birth Of Christ Herald As All Creation Sings.
From Heaven's Portals The Star Did Descend ...
Sin's Dark Shadow Met Its End.
The Star Child That Shone From A Manger Of Hay ...
Still Shines From The Hearts Of The Faithful Today.
May Christ, The Star Child, Shine In Your Heart This Christmas And Eternally ...

acrylic on stretched beveled canvas using traditional bristle brush techniques ~ 48"x 60"
A colorful movement of celestial baubles, of various star types and sizes (blue, white, yellow, orange, red) perform an elaborate "galactic waltz as they spiral through space toward a spiral galactic emperor with a cloaked black hole deep within its light-filled nucleus. A host of other astronomical bodies (comets, asteroids, planetoids) perform a complicated celestial movement as they dance to the bizarre gravitational influx field created from the inescapable gravity of the massive "dark musician."
"Celestial Baubles" is #11 in my Christmas in the Stars limited edition card series. 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. Christmas 2009 will mark the 19th edition. I am currently working on this painting and will post it as soon as I have it completed. 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 . . . )
