How Astronomers Take Such Beautiful Pictures!

Hi all,

hope you are well! This is just a quick post as I stumbled across a video and enjoyed it so much I really wanted to share it with you.

Wanted to also thank you for your patience while my series and accompanying podcast is in production. Things are going well (just slowly! Darn that production value!!) But I have some very interesting interviews coming up. Just taped one yesterday in Bexhill on Sea (South Coast of England) with an expert in crystallography. Fascinating stuff!

I promise also that I will reveal more about my own experience last year… I guess I’m just ‘weaning you in’ so that you’re not too taken aback when I get to it!
But back to the cool video! Throughout the years, when I’ve been painting my abstracts, many people have commented that they look like images from space. Here’s a couple of examples! This first one I actually titled Hubble as so many people said it made them think of outer space! It’s 36 x 60, acrylic on canvas.

And secondly, here’s Enterprise, 36 x 48, acrylic on canvas [sold].

I painted these before my appreciation of space photography began… perhaps foreshadowing it, who knows! And my interest in all things ‘Universe’ certainly skyrocketed after last year’s experience(!)

Hope you enjoy the video below as much as I did, and wishing you health and happiness until next time!
