Black Hole and Quasar
"The accretion disc glows hotter as pieces of matter crash together swirling very fast, and huge jets of hot gas and matter are being shot into space.

"This image was made for the front cover of Astronomy magazine. I used acrylic inks and airbrush on a canvas of 40 x 24 inches. I was inspired by Stephen Hawking."
