Artist's Description

Oil on shale.

This painting is currently featured on my blog, The Flying Trilobite as the banner for 2008.

Trilobites have fascinated me since I was a child. During my university years, they began creeping into my artwork again, occasionally with bat, dragonfly or butterfly wings.

One of the things about artmaking that compels me, is that as human beings we have a tremendous capacity for imagining things that never were, and may never be. This is a beautiful gift (so long as we don’t confuse imagination with reality!), and digging deep into Earth’s prehistoric past fires up my imagination…

…And out come trilobites with faulty anatomy.

One last note: painting on shale is not fit for expensive brushes. You can see more paintings on shale at The Flying Trilobite .

Thanks,
Glendon
