Crossing the Flats - fan art by Diana-Huang Crossing the Flats - fan art by Diana-Huang
11 inches x 24 inches, watercolor on illustration board, 1995

This was my attempt at direct copying a watercolor piece I admire immensely called:

"Crossing the Flats, Mamenchisaurus" the tail has been cut off in this photo!! by Mark Hallett which is owned by the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. The original is sooooooo spectacular, so much detail!!! I saw a copy of it in a book... I have yet to see it in person... I don't recall seeing it... will need to go back and look for it!

I own a copy of this painting in the 1989 Science Year publication by World Book... the publisher of our family's Encyclopedia set. I looooooooved our set. It fed my brain and imagination like crazy!

God I love science!! Gagh!!

not likely to find it. I never saw it there, though their old dinosaur left left much to be desired. Who knows, it may appear in their new hall.

Sigh ok... its a great painting... I don't even know how large it is. Its such a waste not to show it. At least there is plenty of other awesome dino art out there.

their new hall opens next year. It will have a section on the portrayal of dinosaurs, so who knows, it may show up there. And if you like prehistoric murals, you can't go wrong with this book: [link]
