Hello again.

This may be a bit off topic, but all the discussion of dino art reminded me 
of a question I've wondered about for some time. Who did those fabulous 
Cenozoic murals at the Smithsonian? They are some of the most stunningly
beautiful pieces of paleo-art I have ever seen, especially those of some the
later eras. The Miocene and Pliocene paintings, if I remember right, are a scene
from the Serenghetti of Nebraska, that make me wish I could step into the
picture with a back pack and just live there. It's been a few years since I
was in DC, so I'm not absolutely sure which eras the paintings represent but
I hope you know which ones I mean.

I wish these were reproduced as a fine art print that I could fit on my wall.
I'd snap them up in a heartbeat.Generally speaking, I wish more dino art was
available in that form. Some of us just don't have the bucks to shell out
for an original. I would really love it if Mill Pond Press or Greenwich
Workshop, or 
Wild Wings would pick up Henderson, Hallett, or GSP. One of these is already
publishing James Gurney's Dinotopia series, but it's not quite the same.

Any chance of that happening?
