Painting a Day 58

It's amazing really the unexpected places that inspiration can come from.  Today's painting was inspired by looking at photos on the NASA website, taken from the Mars Reconnaissance  Orbiter.  There are all sorts of images that are just cool to look at even though you can't really make out exactly what they are.  And apparently scientists can look at them and see evidence of water!  Frankly I think we need to get our own house in order before we spend the money and resources to go and pollute some other planet, but that's just common sense, no one expects scientists to understand that when they've got all that intellectual megalomania going on.
