Its quite disappointing that most of the CGsociety members dont really seem to 'get' this image. Its quite clear, (unless I'm completely mistaken,)

This is post-apocalyptic America (hence the red white and blue) These are the astronauts that are left. The American space race was massive political and patriotic effort. So this image is saying "ooh look at America now; theyre all homeless hobos with carrier bags instead of space suits."

If the title doesnt add up then the background could have been painted at a destroyed Kennedy Space centre? With an old space helmet cracked, on the ground? The image could then concievably be left 'untitled'

Its ok to have it called 'Astronauts' but without that exact title the image looses its meaning.

Here I am, on a hot 25 C summer day and your work takes me right to that street, right beside the astronaut! :-)

Suddenly it's the middle of winter, walking on the moon!

I am such a big fan of your work. This is another MK masterpiece! There is always a great quality to your paintings, a perfect mix of contemporary and 'old master' styles. Irresistible!

That's really awesome concept man...I visited your web site also & I have become a big fan of your's. what I liked about your artworks is that your handling of different art styles is really amazing. I am inspired by this doubt that this one got an award

I loved the lights and the gestures of the brush strokes and the camera angle you chose!

Sweet narrative Michael! It does indeed speak for itself. Atleast to me it looks like they're on their way to a colony of some sort.

And congratulations on Alice!
