This is my digital painting "Red, white, and blue nebula spiral", a simple affair but I think quite evocative and vivid in its diffuse shapes, something missing from some of my other nebulae.

A pretty girl shelters from a cloudburst in William-Adolphe Bouguereau's "During the Storm", looking disappointed, and no wonder: her colorful and gorgeous fabrics were so perfect for a summer outing!

Realizing genius requires a leap of faith, a belief in the ever-ineffable insight and intuition human beings are capable of, incompatible with the latter-day mechanistic view of intellect and achievement. Thoughts from Alexey Guzey:

Image is "Question to the Stars" by Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach (1901).

Thinking of a theme at once sadder and more ethereal for my space art, the result is "Teardrop nebula"; I love how those blue clouds shimmer!

Henry John Yeend King's "Afternoon Picnic" depicts the kind of delightful summery scene we all deserve: pretty girls strolling down the path to have a picnic amid the calming ripples of the water, the rustling of the leaves.

This is my digital painting "Clouds of stars", an ethereal vision of a gossamer purple nebula cloud, a huge star cluster in tow, passing by a spiral galaxy.

Gazing at Fredrick Leighton's "Flaming June" is a great way to start off the first day after the summer solstice, a bright painting exuding warmth and feminine beauty, a spirit we should carry with all of us this summer!

This is my digital painting "A candle of autumn in the darkness", showing a forest in fall leaf in a dome propelled by a nuclear pulse drive out to the distant stars.

Henry Ryland's "Rose Garland" shows two beautiful girls, wearing lovely dresses, hairstyles, and expressions, passing their time in a wholesomely feminine way, the bright airy warmth suggestive of summer.

Want a fun romantic read this summer filled with adventure from Mercury to the Oort cloud and even a climactic swordfight in Neptune's clouds? Then you might like my novel "The Hunt for Count Gleichen's Treasure".


For a novel down the road I've had an inspiration to feature a city spinning in space with a crystal and stained glass theme. In that vein, enjoy Joseph Coomans's "The Jewellery Box".

Giovanni Boldini's vivid dynamic vision of Geneviève Lantelme shows off her pleasant figure, fair skin, full face, doe eyes, and luscious lips, adorned by a bold stylish outfit guaranteed to turn heads.

This is my digital painting "Lane of Stars", my first attempt to show a galaxy's disk tilted up just high enough to see past the dust clouds and to add some depth to the vision.

Guy Rose's "The Green Parasol" is an interesting painting, full of summer vibes, the gorgeous girl's contemplative, almost sad expression contrasting well with the lovely dress, parasol, and soft natural scene.

Here's my digital painting "Partying at the emerald nebula", the idea being that the lights are turned down and some girls are enjoying themselves in front of the view. Ghostly yet enticing I think.
