Mary Wendel: Ankylosaurus (Print)
12" x 12" Print
The squatty, knobby Ankylosaurus meaning ‘fused lizard’ was discovered in the Hell Creek Formation of Montana in 1906. Some indigenous flowers to this area are also in this painting like the Blue Bachelor Button, Bitterroot, Spotted Knapweed, Scarlet Gilia, and Blanketflower. Ankylosaurus was basically an alligator and a giant armadillo meshed into one.
Get to Know the Austin Artist: Mary Wendel
Painting has been my life for over 18 years and I have been living in Austin for 7. My favorite subjects to paint are portraits of people and animals. In the series “Dino Queens” I explored and celebrated science by creating colorful and romantic dinosaur paintings. The flowers in each painting are from the areas the dinosaurs were first discovered. When I’m not painting I love swing dancing, riding my horse, Windy, and making things like puppets and costumes.
