Red Smoke

You saw "Purple Haze," now here's "Red Smoke." Don't believe the color, either here or in the garish nebula pictures that you see from Hubble or other telescopes. Some scientist has been busy enhancing the colors so that the pix will be sexy. Didn't think space could be sexy? In America anything can be sexy, if you need to market it. Is that nebula one of space's Red Light Districts? Are there nebula nude starlets waiting for you in a cosmic bordello? Get astrophysical with these hotties.

"Red Smoke" is acrylic on illustration board, 7" x 10", October 1990.
