There is a beautiful C16th painting by Jacopo Bassano of animals entering Noah's Ark. Jacopo painted farm animals but I have used his composition (sorry Jacopo) but substituted dinosaurs. And I have a flying saucer for the ark. I added a couple of touches from film (The Day The Earth stood still) and TV (Lost in Space) - both being almost prehistoric themselves now!

I almost titled this "Whatever happened to the Dinosaurs?" but settled for Bassano's title because I believe the dinosaur disappearance theme speaks for itself from the painting. It is the second time I have painted this subject - the first, in acrylic and long ago sold, was very popular, and indeed I had really enjoyed myself as every pair of little dinos came to life on the canvas, so I decided to visit the subject again. It is very unusual for me to do that as I am never short of new ideas and I like my work to be unique but this one has a different character with bolder colour.

Painted on stretched canvas and fitted with cord hangings; designed to be hung unframed. This is a powerful painting to enhance almost any room.
