HI DEAR FRIEND' YOU HAVE SUCH A CREATIVE THINKING I LIKE THE BLOG. THEY ARE TRUELY GOOD QULITY AND FAR EXCELLENCE, CONGRATULATION TO YOU. KEEP IT UP AND CONTIUNUE YOUR BLOGGING TO FAME.

kindly Support My Mission By giving your Vote:

This is a painful one for Shirley and her husband Larry their daughter Margie was brutally murdered by the man who claimed to love her, Margie’s husband. “It’s easy to look back now and see the warning signs,” states Shirley. “But back then our family did not realize that the verbal attacks were escalating into physical assaults until it was too late.

I ask You to have patience and compassion for victims of domestic violence. It is important to realize women stay with abusers for many reasons. Judging and placing blame on victims only drives them farther into silence. Please remember, leaving an abuser is not a decision, it’s a process. Stick it out, be supportive of your friend, family member or coworker. You may be their only hope.”

great pics! Some even resemble modern day machines like the NMSS-3. It looks like present day Ticonderoga class destroyers of the US Navy.

Interesting blog

Chris Foss is among my favorite Sci-fi artists. His work is vivid and unique. I especially like the colors and a sense of scale and vastness one often senses in many of his paintings.

He and Peter Elson inspired a lot of contemporary computer game artists. Their influence is especially visible in games like Home World and Wipe Out.

Beautiful and inspirational work!

Chris Foss ha sido toda una inspiración en mi juventud (años 80).
Lo he recordado a través de una cita que he oido sobre "Erase una vez el espacio" (otra que tal baila), cuyas naves siempre me han parecido basadas o creadas por él.
Sólo dos palabras: Im - Presionante

I have this book... he was a great influence on me in my teens... fantastic artist.
