Discovery of a dinosaur embryo.


I am ahead of my time. Or should I say “behind schedule for 66 million years?”
This week scientists in China found a fossil of an dinosaur egg, approximately 66 million years old. With an almost (!!!) complete skeleton inside. They called it BABY YINGLIANG.

It is believed to be a toothless theropod dinosaur, or oviraptorosaur, and has been named Baby Yingliang.
Researcher Dr Fion Waisum Ma said it is “the best dinosaur embryo ever found in history”.


Last month I finished my big drawing “on the origin of species V” ( See one of my latests posts, 150 x 180 cm).
And lets be honest, the resemblance is striking.
A coincidence? Not really. For years I am working on what I call “The Darwin Project”.
When does a brushstroke, or a pencil line, tranforms into a organic form?
I don’t plan anything, I don’t make studies, before making the end piece. I just do. The work creates itself.
Like the egg of an embryo of a dinosaur, on the point of hatching.
The work is for sale.

I am Dutch. Try to master the English language. Read a lot. Margaret Atwood for instance, with the Madadam Trilogy and A Handmaid Tale.

Run into new words:

Yore, of Yore: A long time ago.

This is me. My drawings and paintings. Refering to a time, where forms weren’t that specific. The origin of….

I am using different backgrounds now (acrylic and siberain chalk) and try to make a combination between this background in paint and the drawings I’ve made lately. And on top, again paint, in acrylic or oil. Layer over layer, over layer. Chalk over paint, paint over chalk).

“DRAWTINGS”, I call them.
