No Bones

I should be working on a shield and doing gold leaf on a scroll but both are being contrary right now, so I am posting older work.

This is on a 6 x 6 stone tile in Acrylics. I have done several painted tiles now and really like doing them. I have done smaller and slightly larger but this was the first "illusianary" tile. Made to look like it is a real fossil and not a painting. "Firelizard Fossil", done in 2008.


  1. I have to say that the illusion got me! Here I was wondering, "Why is Master Tristan posting fossils in his weble??" Very cool!

  2. Very nice! Luckily for me i love fossils so was all like "that's not a real dino there. Nope nothing quite like that in the fossil record. Oh it is on a tile... everything is as it should be!"

    i wonder how i would do on something like this. to many art projects and not enough time or space to do them.
