This Specimen Series biz is leading somewhere...not sure of the destination and I haven't been able to perfectly articulate it's reasoning, but I'm riding this thing out. Interior Specimens is just another step down the path. A few thoughts swimming in my head in regards to this painting: animals as objects, the need and passion for collecting, desire of ownership, intrigue with the exotic, and marrying interior and exterior. There's an odd romance about it all.
