"Tyrannosaurus"

 

36" x 24" | SOLD

Oil on canvas

 

"Like millions of people, dinosaurs have always been a fascination of mine, and as I have grown older, the actual fossils have become far more interesting than the cartoon animations you see in movies. So, if you are going to paint dinosaur fossils, why not start with the best? That's how my Tyrannosaurus was born."
