Cratis Oregonius - A Dedication. by AlienVisitor

Cratis Oregonius - A Dedication. by 

Having terraformed “Great Blue”,Deri’s Androids started to explore nearby systems.
They were looking for a system that had a number of colonizable planets ,the main reason for this was to find a hunting and fishing preserve for Deri’s father.
This human,filled with goodness,with his wife and children led them out of slavery in the Andromeda Galaxy.To find a better place.
And they found such a system,it had 5 planets,all the planets were very wild,each had oceans,wetlands,plains,mountains which held a vast range of wildlife.
The one planet they chose for his home was very rugged,and looked just like where he had grown up on Earth,it even had a moon like Great Blue.
The forces from the moon had pulled and stretched the landscape into countless contorted shapes.
Deri’s father would live here for eternity,surrounded by his hunting and fishing buddies.And if at some point in time they decided to do other things,such as development,tourism,guiding,on the other planets in the system,then the ships known as Goonies would be there for their use.
The system was called Skeetsaway.
The first planet to be colonized was called Cratis Oregonius,the moon was given the name Hoods Moon.
Here we have night descending as Hoods rises over the Cascadia Mountains.

This is dedicated to Derid’s father.He as left this earth,and he waits for us on a distant world somewhere in a different future………………

In this rendering I used 2 of Derid’s images “Around Crater Lake” and “Blue Moon”


Everyone needs an escape. This is mine!

My imagination is my art it is

“Art & Stories Beyond Earth”

My creations seem to escape from the very fabric of space & time, they are but a window into a future that awaits just beyond the Bounds of Earth.

    I thank you all for both the viewing and the comments.
    Anita,Derid,the pleasure was all mine.
    My feeling can best be expressed with my art.
    While we are living,we must enjoy what we are given to the fullest.
    Because one day we will slip this mortal coil,and all be one in the void.
    I think Derid’s father enjoyed his long life to the fullest.

    I love your glimpses of off-world excitement and ‘history’! I feel like I am on an historical tour of the future when I browse through your art.
    It’s great! I love it!
