Kelly Freas frontispiece for 1999 limited edition of Kim Stanley Robinson’s collection The Martians

I recently stumbled across this akward piece of Mars art painted by world-renowned and honored science fiction artist Kelly Freas (1922-2005). Rendered in acrylics, this painting served as the frontispiece for the 1999 Easton Press limited edition of Kim Stanley Robinson's collection The Martians. Apparently, the original painting was sold by Freas and his wife at auction in 2004 through Heritage Galleries & Auctioneers of Dallas.
