Ice Towers of Titan
"This painting imagines the surface of Titan with icy mountains, hydrocarbon lakes, and methane icebergs. In the foreground are some imagined 'ice towers' - these are created by steam from residual heat from deep within the crust. The skies are said to be orange in color, I still think it is interesting to see what one thought it might have looked like before Huygens landed on Titan. The piece was done in acrylics."
