'Antares 2' was a commission by fellow artist David Egge. It shows the red supergiant star, which we see in Scorpio and is one of the biggest and brightest stars known. It has a small bluish companion, Antares B. Hardy deliberately made the landscape reminiscent of those painted by the US 'Hudson River School' of artists, such as Thomas Moran and Frederic Church; he says that if they were alive today, rather than painting the US West they would be space artists!
