The Naturalist

"The Naturalist", 48"x36", acrylic on canvas

"The Naturalist" is finished - here it is.

Lately I've been toying with the image of a disassembled clock as you can see here.  For me it can symbolize a time before our modern preoccupation with time, deadlines, etc. or in this case perhaps the clock is being assembled and symbolizes the beginning of a new era - The Age of Discovery when naturalists and other types of explorers were coming to the "New World" and bringing with them their values and technologies regarding resources, time and the natural world.
