fake sky

This is a painting I made about how all the amazing colors we see in the sky and clouds at sunset are the result of air pollution. Light from the sun is reflected and trapped in greenhouse gasses which form more intense colors which we all seem to love so much.

Tales n' Trails of Rock n' Roll is out, I will post the images from the book within the next week!
