Hi Jeff,
that's a lovely rendition - i tried to recreate it but failed miserably. It's difficult to capture the weirdness of all of the burnt trees as well as the enormity of space. You capture the feeling nicely. oh, this is kelley (eberhardt) burress from BSU arts 1999...got your link from Randy. keep painting!
