"Space is unforgiving. It is an environment that demands pure rationality. The terror, however, is also filled with beauty, and this is much of the appeal of the astronomical art genre. The viewer can gaze upon airless landscapes that are bereft of any earthly softness as an artist might contemplate a bare canvas: a place of potential, waiting patiently to be shaped or explored by human hands and minds." — Don Dixon

Hi Don, your work is awesome! While viewing your work I felt as tho I was there. Your details are so pure and vibrant that I felt as tho I was viewing a photo, or thru a telescope.
