    Hi AG. I too am hampered by the inability to post new photos on the forum anymore. Thanks for the update in Lillian Koslover. Also, we have a very talented artist on this forum too. He is GWING (Greg), and here are a few of his great astro oil paintings:
    M51 Oil Painting
    NGC 4565 Oil Painting
    Rosette Nebula Oil Painting
    Crab Nebula-Oil Painting
    Thanks for your post AG, and the best of regards.

    Hello Marshall,

    thank you for reminding Greg GWING, our great painter of the deep sky treasures in the style of
    French post-impressionists, and in his specific gendre, no way behind.

    Hello Antenna Guy,

    and thank you for introducing the amazing painting Lillian Koslover to us,

    Since the forum was upgraded I don't think anyone has been able to upload any image files. I recommend Imgur as a free file hosting service.
