This is my digital painting "Galactic lanes", a vision of a densely-packed golden core of a galaxy defined by dark clouds of gas and dust.

Let's make fall 2021 Art Girl Autumn! Amid those crisp winds and lovely leaves why not wear cute skirts and pigtails, break out those paint brushes, and make art in the fresh air?

The season of long nights of stargazing, chilling breezes caressing the body, and rusty leaves whirling in the air has come at last, so enjoy Hughes Merle's "Falling Leaves, Allegory of Autumn".

This is my digital painting "Pouty jack-o-lantern dark nebula", an earlier painting in a different color, looking quite spooky, Halloween-like, but also cute I think!

On the last day before the autumn equinox, let's look back on the season that was by gazing upon the beautiful girl in a beautiful summer-with-a-hint-of-fall landscape that is Albert Edelfelt's "Summer".

Well, I'm having a blast writing my latest story, about a parthenogenetic sisterhood, a torrid romance, a space-operatic treasure hunt, and more, now up to 16,000 words!

This is my painting "Teardrop Nebula II", a scene in space with a note of sadness to man's eyes yet with the glimpses of the stars beyond in the center evocative of beautiful infinity.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau's "The Virgin With Angels" is a lovely vision of the infant Jesus surrounded by angels with faces feminine, soft, and pretty, expressions and poses endearing.

This is my digital painting "Pouty dark nebula", showing thick clouds of gas and dust clearing out in a pattern reminiscent of a cute pouting face.

My style of "Harry Potter"; Harry, Draco, and Luna as the triad, a villainous Hogwarts, and a revolution in a cosmopolitan wizarding world.

This post's featured image is "Martyr and crucified, son Helios" by Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach (1895).

This is my painting "Red nebula with star cluster", something of a classic theme for me but with more black-cloud details that I think add a lot!

Harrison Fisher's "Autumn's Beauty" is so ! A fair girl with a soft, round, welcoming face clad in bright feminine colors throwing herself into the craft of paint and canvas while surrounded by lovely fall leaves.

Like, the spacefaring populace is nomadic, encryption is unbreakable, the state is gone, and there's no cosmic coordination of policy, so unless it's voluntary or an isolated false imprisonment offense lockdown is basically impossible in my space-opera universe.

Thinking about making a sci-fi story in my setting about a struggle against a lockdown-like regime, but I can't think of any scenario where the heroes both couldn't just leave the scene and where the villains look like a state instead of insane marauding criminals. So scrap that.

This is my digital painting "Owl under alien sky in building snowstorm", an attempt to branch out into weather and creatures. I kinda like how it came out!

William-Adolphe Bouguereau's "The Storm" shows two seaside darlings on a raw day, their faces betraying a note of fear swamped by the pure adorableness of their expressions, not to mention their fair, beautiful features.

This is my painting "Redheaded beauty gazing at galactic star lanes", exactly what it says in the title, a simply-done but I think pleasant sight.

Alexandre Cabanel's "Harmonie" is such a delightful scene, a sunbeam lighting up an airy room, highlighting an angelically beautiful girl playing an organ. I like that dress, and I adore that hairstyle!

Bryan Caplan makes the point in this interesting piece from a week or so ago that the libertarian movement has been hobbled in the past 20 years by being too reactive to each crisis that comes along instead of proactively seeking to create a new world:

This is my digital painting "Glowing purple tree", showing a bioluminescent alien wonderland forest. I really like how it came out!
