In God’s Country is part of my Alternate Treeality™ series. Each artwork in the series is created using photo layering. Through various treatments, opacities and image, color and texture alterations, a new reality is created in these layers to give the composited image a surreal yet familiar appearance. Most of the images in this photo composite were taken at Joshua Tree National Park on the day of the 30th anniversary of the band U2’s Joshua Tree album. This image is named after one of the songs on that album.
