Specimen (Darwin)

Yet another piece based on old scientific texts. This one came from an entry in an encyclopedia published in Darwin's lifetime. I scanned it & printed it so as not to destroy the original. The print was collaged to canvas, then painted over with acrylics. 6x6"

(By the way, while the entry acknowledged some controversy over his theories, it acclaimed him as an eminent naturalist who had revolutionized scientific thought.)

Looks like a troubled soul...

But your painting is gorgeous. All of them are. You are very talented and I love the light bulb painging and the snapdragons, too.
