A PLANET WITHOUT OCEANS OR LAND
This may not be our Mercury, but one in another solar system far away. It is too close to its sun but at a distance where it does not evaporate.
This painting is experimenting with space in a landscape that we are not familiar with. There is nothing green to balance the overall color. Hot colors all the way to the horizon and the sky is purple and turquoise, pulling the eye forward. Yellow streams of melting material confuses distance.
What fun it is to play with space…to create holes in the painting suggesting canyons and bas-relief enhancing the mountains.
