This 4.5-hour long speed painting (based on a mounted specimen of Triceratops at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History).
The "Odds & Ends Art Show" continues a 9 year long tradition of artists Raven and Scott that spotlights current scientific understanding about ancient life with bright, imaginative reconstructions of both fossil elements and flesh and blood recreations of prehistoric animals and the environment in which they lived. Through their art, they seek to share their unique vision of deep time with the public, promoting science and a sense of wonder of the creatures that existed long ago.
Happy holidays, everyone. May we all manage in the coming year.
