“Color Plate 208” combines a photograph from deviantART member E-DinaPhotoArt with a painting created by my father, Gus Maier.

Complex borders around the images fade into a white background. Source images include 19th century engravings, filtered stock photos, ArtMatic renders, astronomical photos of space and planetary surfaces, the paintings of my father, Gus Maier, and of course my own artwork – recycled and reused.
