T-Rex Dinosaur by Darren Maurer

16" x 20"
As many of you that follow my blog already know, one of my many interests is hunting various types of fossils which also include dinosaurs. As a group we usually make it out in the field a few times a year for the fun and adventure of discovering fossils from several interesting animals and plants that are long ago extinct. I have put together a nice collection of fossils over the years and have become very proficient in dinosaur anatomy from the countless hours spent in the field, reading, and comparing fossils from different collections and species. Our group is invited for public speaking engagements at schools, colleges, universities, and museums several times a year to share our knowledge and adventures with anyone interested. As an artist and dinosaur enthusiast, I have always been fascinated by the many talented paleo-artists working in the field today. My goal is to begin completing some paleo related oil paintings as time allows and see where it goes. I would love to illustrate my own book someday or assist others with paleo illustration projects. This painting is one of the first I decided to share with everyone on my blog page. This is a T-Rex and I especially like the menacing look that the viewer is greeted with. This painting was published in Prehistoric Times Magazine #106 Summer 2013 issue.
