Last month I went to Dinosaur Valley State Park and I saw this...
It was hot and there were about a million people crowding around the dinosaur foot print taking pictures and behaving like typical Americans. We collectively mumbled under our breathe, "This is it?" in regards to the footprint.
What a bunch of assholes we were. Yeah...this is it - it's a fucking dinosaur footprint for the love of god, we should have been beside ourselves with wonder! But we weren't. Even as I lived that moment I felt gross.
And I saw this...
What was wrong with me? This was supposed to be a cheerful outing and I was acting like a senile fun-nazi. It all seemed so cheap. So I started this painting.
