This is an original acrylic painting. It started as a pen drawing on a textured canvas panel; created in a sort of dreamlike, meditative state where I let my pen scribble randomly upon the canvas until images emerged. This painting is my subconscious tribute to Charles Darwin, who wrote his famous "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life" in 1859.

9 x 12 textured canvas panel

Please feel free to convo me with any questions. Thanks for looking.

**IMAGES - please note**
1 - image one is a scan, closer to the true color, but cropped due to size of scanner
2 - image two is a photograph, showing the actual edges of the painting
