Weekly Painting Week 19- Complimentary Color and Abstract Landscape

My continued fascination with all things Southwest. Amazing how there are 6B people on the planet and still there are places this empty. Gigantic clouds rise high in the sky and the desert looks so vast. Orange and blue contrast to make each seem more vivid. This painting is 30 x 40, a nice size for the subject. Oil on canvas

Abstract painting of an overhead shot of Barsoom. which we know as Mars. Great book, great movie. This started as a painted desert scene that took on a a life of its own. This time, I let the painting decide what it wanted to be.
