Science Fiction and Down on the Earth Mystery

Will There Be Peace Anywhere Copyright MM Sikes
Space has always intrigued me. As a child, I looked at the stars and wondered "what if I could fly there". Although I've never been a reader of science fiction books, I have loved Star Trek and other sci-fi series. But I am a painter who covets the thrill of space and who likes to use the concept of other worlds and planets in my work. I have an outer space painting underway now in my studio. Fractal imagery intrigues me as an inspiration for space paintings.

Alex Cavanaugh is a writer who is drawn to space. Today, he is launching my blog tour for the week for Night Watch at his site.My down on the Earth mystery may seem a little mundane to space lovers. I hope not.

I've never been a big reader of science fiction, but I have always enjoyed watching it on TV or the movies. Off to check on your post.

I like space adventures too and always loved Star Trek in most of its forms. However, as you know, fantasy is it for me. I'll drop in on Alex.

Enjoyed the first stop on your tour and left a comment there. I like the artwork depicted on this post here. I can't tell though--is it a painting or a collage or something else?

Arlee Bird, the art work here is a mixed water media painting on Arches 300# paper. Thanks for commenting.

Nancy, my children love fantasy as well as all things connected to Star Trek. We even went to a convention one year!

Alex, I would love to. It's just finding the time with my crazy schedule!!!
