"The Fossil Hunter"
Oil     14x18
Inspiration and Design:
This subject matter was gathered during the 2011 Artist's Ride in South Dakota.  The fossil hunter is Richard Bickel;  Richard posed as an early fossil hunter, fascinated upon noticing the watery past of the Badlands.  His right hand inspects the fossilized sea-life in the split boulder.  His left holds a handkerchief, conveying the intense heat of the Badlands.
