Welcome to the Red Planet! I enjoyed painting “Moonrise on Neptune III” so much that I decided to do another alien planet landscape. I started out to paint a Mars landscape. But as I got further into the painting, I found myself bored with the muted red and brown color scheme. My planet needed some brighter colors. So I began opening up my palette to more vibrant reds and oranges. The image started coming alive, and I had no trouble completing the piece. The desert landscape with a hint of civilization past adds mystery to my version of the Red Planet.

“Red Planet” is an original acrylic painting on stretched canvas. Measures 20 x 16 inches. Unframed. Signed by the artist.
