Still Life with Dinosaurs

DinosaurSketchI'm up in Maine on vacation, explaining the recent resurgence in landscapes. But out back on the porch I found a trunk full of large dinosaur toys, and I love the expressions on them- scary, but almost comical. In the evenings I've been trying to sketch them. Then yesterday I went to a little local fair and came across an old deep sea diver toy. Without delving into the psychological ramifications, as a kid I always wanted armor, a wet suit, or a deep sea diving equipment. So, in the evenings after chores, poking around, and painting all day, I've been setting up a little still life to do some ink sketches. I could do this for a living.
