O, Hello watercolor....

"Command Z"
11 x 14 in.
watercolor on paper

Friday, February 25th, is the opening of "THE AGE OF REPTILES" at Paradigm gallery in Philadelphia. I decided to take a different approach to this themed show, and interpret dinosaur as something that has become extinct in today's society because of time (and technology). The typewriter was a perfect example of this (and fun to paint), big, bulky and outdated (and not to mention, it actually does kind of look like a dinosaur, even though, well, nobody's ever seen a dinosaur). I also decided to paint this piece in watercolor, which I really enjoyed - but it will never replace oil < 3.
