Microcosm: Triceratops by jasminetoad Microcosm: Triceratops by jasminetoad
"Microcosm: Triceratops" is the second painting in my Microcosms series - delving into the theme of Alchemical microcosms - miniature life and worlds created in glass jars or beakers. This installment features a beautiful girl painted in a very classical style, holding an aerated glass orb containing a tiny primeval world, complete with triceratops! As an amateur paleontologist I simply love dinosaurs and adore painting them when possible. This is one of my favourite paintings - it also features the iris, one of my favourite flowers. This painting debuted and sold at the Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 2012 show, prints & posters are now available! My own original acrylic painting. My original acrylic painting. Prints available at [link] and [link]

I think this is one of my favorite pieces of yours. I love the wondering expression on her face. Plus, you know, dinosaurs. Just brilliant.

This is one of your best! I love the expression in the girls face. The triceratops is truly amazing. I like this one because it is a little different than your other work. The face of this girl is a little different and has a softer expression in her face. Great work!
