I finished this piece today for the annual silent auction of the Union Gallery located at Stauffer Library, Queen’s University, Kingston (auction dates: October 14th to November 17th). The theme this year is Place/Identity.
A fossil of the primitive bird Archaeopteryx lithographia (the “Berlin specimen”) from the Solnhofen Limestone site in southern Germany was the inspiration for this painting, which took a turn or two of its own past that image.
