Cosmic Landscapes inspired by Peter Max

From the Peter Max Website:
America's Painter Laureate and Pop Art Icon, Peter Max's bold colors, uplifting images and uncommon artistic diversity have touched almost every aspect of American culture and has inspired many generations.

Max's work has been called cosmic and psychedelic. His more recent works represent his ideas about a harmonious, beautiful world. He is well known for his album cover art, particularly for the Beatles.

Fifth and sixth grade artists examined many of Max's works before designing their own cosmic landscapes in his style. Each student's piece contains elements that can be seen in many of Max's works. What are some of the repeated images and themes that you see in the Peter Max pictures above and in the student work below?
