This is my digital painting "Twin pulsars", showing the lighthouse-like beams of immense power being put out and the magnetic and gravitational fields emanating from them.

"Accolade" by Edmund Blair Leighton shows to great effect the warrior spirit, and a femininity that is at once gorgeous (that hair and dress are magnificent!) and authoritative, two things we could use a lot more of.

The Sith killing each other, the dawn of the Rule of Two, the refounding of the Republic, and more: why not a Star Wars Darth Bane film trilogy?

This post's featured image is "The Great Day of His Wrath" by John Martin (1851-53).

Departing from my usual routine, my digital painting "Wide urban street" depicts what kind of streets I'd put in if I wanted to build a city from scratch.

Getting to a point in writing my new novel where a thunderstorm on an alien planet provides ambiance for a romantic rapture makes me think of Pierre-Auguste Cot's lovely and summery "The Storm".

None of the answers I gave seemed that woke to me, but according to this quiz I'm a tight-fisted free-marketer who's woke of center? Eh, whatever. Far from the worst thing in the world. 🙃

My digital painting "Red globular cluster" is perhaps a bit too subtle in execution, but I enjoyed making the red glow amid the reddish-white stars.

This is my digital painting "Blue energy burst", more abstract than what I usually go for, but eh, at least it looks kinda cool!

Don't waste your souls on ideologies that find no value in girls being rich, beautiful, and roaming the cosmos in their own starships. Dream big, dream well!

Pretty girl taking flight is Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun's "Portrait of Princess Karoline of Liechtenstein" (1793).

Alphonse Mucha's "The Moon" shows the lunar spirit in front of her world, looking almost as if today, 52 years since man first walked there, she's calling us back. I for one hope we return soon.

"I wonder why most aliens we've met are primitive; legions millions of years behind us, none millions ahead of us. Where are they now? How many of them you think have journeyed here before us?"

My first ; is my own "Girls' Night Out".

This is my new digital painting "Mirror of ring galaxies", showing nearly identical ring galaxies all in a line. A bizarre formation, but a sight that might be out there somewhere in the cosmos!

Seeing the same old lies and slander about Ayn Rand in the abyss of birdsite is as unsurprising as it is disappointing. Makes me feel like the girl staring into another kind of abyss in Albert von Keller's "Melancholy".

This is my latest digital painting, a simple but I think quite striking combination of "Tree Climber's Moon" with my venerable painterly black hole.

Because there's no such thing as too much Geneviève Lantelme, here's perhaps my favorite picture of her, showing hair so abundant and flowing, face so soft and round, expression at once hot and adorable. So beautiful, so feminine.

This is my digital painting "Dragon dark nebula", showing black clouds of dust obscuring the view to a galactic core except for a dragon-shaped passage, a red nebula for flaming breath, a star for an eye.
