Artwork Description

I'd like to be there, on a terraformed Mars (or one of the distant past?), fishing in the rivers that might have been in Ares Vallis.

Been working on this on and off since the beginning of February. It was meant to be a quick, sharp piece, but I was displeased with the rocks, and I had to start detailling them obsessively. That took a while.

Inspiration came from the surreal blue sunset shot by Spirit in 2005. The title is an, initially unwitting, nod to Ursula K. Le Guin (A fisherman of the Inland Sea).
