The "Three Tenors of Frog Creek", evolved.

The initial incarnation for "Three Tenors"

Recent development of the canvas, which has spent much of the last two years in storage. [Following pics click to enlarge in new tab or window.]

In order to reinspire myself, I made extreme changes to the background and the frogs, so that I could see the piece anew.

Modifying the sun in random ways kept the piece moving, even if it did not yet suggest a resolution.

While listenening to several science podcasts in the last two weeks, I repeatedly heard about the recently described, extinct giant snake, Titanoboa (Wikipedia link); the largest snake ever. It was 50 feet long and over a ton in weight! This mindboggling constrictor lived about seven million years after the dinosaurs disappeared. I imagine that it was a mammal eater and would have considered me a choice snack. Needless to say, it made an impression on me and changed the piece.

I have been waiting a long time to excavate and reestablish the musical notes of the composition; added a few new ones. Added reticulation pattern to the snake's back.

Darwin Day, Crane-Evolution Hoedown. ["Crane, Powwow Dancer" (Part 2)]

I have previously blogged about the first second incarnation of this canvas. This piece has seen plenty of change in the last week, but it will interest you to see how this irregular piece of canvas has changed through time. [All pics click to enlarge.]

Crane, Powwow Dancer (Part 1)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The first incarnation of the canvas had three main elements: bronze turtle, large and vague drum, a disembodied human head...

Only the turtle element survived the canvas "repurposing". This is how the piece looked, at the end of previous posting (Part 1 link, above).

There was an existing horizon line, I decided to start adding some foreground.

Now, I'm adding a volcanic icecap to the background, to create more space. I elongate the vertical perspective with intervening spaces.

Adding sky, stretches the perspective range further into the background.

Most people who argue about C. Darwin and his impact on our current zeitgeist have never read his seminal book, so take some time to download and listen to the whole thing, from Librivox.Org;
On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection
