In the Geologic Abstractions series I downloaded from the Internet images of historical maps from the 19th and early 20th centuries of geologic structures of the given area of land. Using the colors from the maps themselves and deleting all other information in the maps these painting-like abstractions were revealed. The titles are taken directly from the maps and offer the only hint at the actual location in the maps.
