Several months ago, I decided to plan for a rainy day (or a snowy one), and took my camera to CABELA'S and a BASS PRO SHOP...both huge sporting goods stores in the area. While I have mixed feelings about taxidermy, I have to admit that the animals stay still a lot longer than in the wild. Both stores are filled with dramatically posed animals, and I took gobs of photos. Since I love going to sketch in Natural History museums, this seemed very similar. So, yesterday and today, I pulled up some of the pics on my computer, and started drawing and painting...in a nice warm house!
The happy little snapping turtle, I'm pleased to report, was NOT stuffed. I took several photos of him while he was swimming in the huge aquarium tanks they have at Cabela's. Okay...that's it for this time!!
