Luminous Ice Phenomena in the Park by Tolkyes Luminous Ice Phenomena in the Park by Tolkyes
Oil on canvas. 22"x28".

In Winter, light is sometimes trapped in the ice, causing it to emit a phosphorescent glow in certain areas.
The luminorphs are seldom seen in the Winter but will emerge in more abundance, apparently attracted to the florescent ice.

Thank you. I like luminosity. I specifically look for photos of ice that are being illuminated by sun or moonlight. I like nebulae and jellyfish for this reason, too.

It's funny how there are jellyfish in many of Your paintings, I guess they are fun to draw : ) We've got a lot to learn from You..

I like jellyfish because of their flowing organic forms, their ability to glow different colors and their translucent spirit-like appearance.

the space jellyfish are one species of luminorph. There are also plant luminorphs, as well.

have you seen the videos on youtube by the man who has caught them on tape using a telescope and some homemade camera apparatus?
i can find it and send you the link if you havent seen it.

I've seen film footage of what scientists call 'sprites'. They are organic looking forms on the border between our atmosphere and outer space. These are plasma entities where lightning comes from.
I think that you're referring to something else, though.
I'd like to see the YouTube videos you mentioned.

i couldnt find the original original (always the way with the internet)
but here are some of the captures... there is a very long and unnessecary intro first, sorry bout that.
anyway, i'll let you see and make your own judgements.

There are billions of planets in our galaxy and billions of other galaxies so there is almost certainly life elsewhere in the cosmos.
Unfortunately, blurry photos of stuff against a black background while cool music plays doesn't prove anything.
Are these actually 'deep' space objects? Most of them look like satellites. It's easy to see satellites through telescopes. Some are quite large.

like i said, the video wasnt the original... i couldnt find that one. the guy that filmed them got letters off nasa explaining them away as large sattelite objects, unmanned leftovers from programs of years gone by..
but some look alive and like jellyfish.
in fact here is a link to one of his videos, with one of the correspondences from nasa about them being unmanned craft.

i saw one of these jellyfish creatures myself years back.
the ones video'd are claimed to be in our outer solar system.

The organic looking ones are the most interesting.
If they are genuinely in our outer solar system, even more so.

This is wonderful, details everywhere you turn, and the attention to detail is captivating. Did it take long to do James and how did you find getting through it?

Thank you. I'm glad you like it. I've found myself spending more time and paying more attention to detail on my paintings these days. I used to do a painting a month but now it seems to take me about 6 weeks or so to do a painting, depending on the size of the canvas, of course.
I carefully laid out every element in this painting first. I was satisfied with the outcome but not really all that excited with it.
I normally prefer doing paintings that aren't quite so carefully laid out ahead of time and involve a little more spontaneity. It's nice to be surprised by your own painting. This makes it a little more enjoyable when it's finished.
In reaction to this last painting I'm now doing one that involves the opposite process. It's completely spontaneous.

Thanks. I did a lot of research for this painting. The one I'm working on now will be the opposite. I'm not looking at any photos at all and no preliminary sketches. It's completely spontaneous. I feel compelled to paint this way from time to time in order to be a true surrealist. Being a fantasy landscape painter is fine but 'surrealist' just sounds better.

Can't help to imagine I'm inside this piece: I walk through the frozen labyrinth to my favorite spot; a bench where I will view this frozen world come to life. I light the fire place behind me and the ice melts away to the warmth of spring.
Wonderful work, invokes the imagination greatly. :heart:
