Dinosaur Friends: Requiem

Dinosaur Friends: Requiem


Based on a true story! Well, kind of. When I was a little girl my “imaginary friends” were dinosaurs that would come out of the walls when I’d lie in bed at night. I remember it completely as being 100% real. I wasn’t afraid of them, I was very obsessed/preoccupied with dinosaurs back then (still am, actually). I also like to think that this piece shows the process of extinction and of time passing. The girl is obviously in an era previous to our own (a sort of Rococo or slightly Victorian feel), but much more recent than the prehistoric scene behind her. The birds and butterfly she is shown with (Ivory Billed Woodpecker, Black Faced Honeycreeper, the Choiseul Crested Pigeon and the Urania Sloanus butterfly) all look like contemporary animals to us but they are all in fact extinct, having gone extinct only in the past several decades, in our lifetimes. Side note – there are those who think that the Ivory Billed Woodpecker is not extinct, and I am among that camp. Matt & I regularly go birding here in central Florida on the lookout for them (several have been spotted but not confirmed in the area). Haven’t seen any triceratops though.  This piece debuted at my Birds and Beasties show in Seattle at the Eight and Sand Gallery.

Two different kinds of canvas prints are available!  The Masterpiece Limited Editions are limited to an edition of only FIVE canvases, hand embellished in acrylic paints by Jasmine herself, signed, dated, and numbered out of 5, measuring 16″x20″ on thick gallery wrapped wooden stretcher bars (ready-to-hang).  We also have the Open Edition Canvases which are remarqued with the JBG initial on the front, measure 12″x16″ (also wrapped & ready-to-hang) and come with a signed certificate of authenticity.



Additional Details

Glossy Photo Prints

All Glossy Photo Prints are printed on a glossy photo paper with Canon Lucia archival inks and signed ON THE BACK by ME, the artist. Small prints are printed on 8.5×11″ sheets and large prints on 13×19″ sheets, but the printed area will reflect the odd dimensions of the painting itself. When you select the print size and type that you want to purchase, the Printed Area Dimensions will appear below your selection. Please note the dimensions to make sure that the print you select is a size that will work for your needs. We cannot provide custom print sizes at this time. What you see offered is what is available.


We have TWO types of canvas prints available for this image. The Masterpiece Limited Edition Canvases (16″x20″, hand embellished, signed & numbered out of 5 at $595 each) and the Open Edition Remarqued Canvases (12″x16″ with a signed certificate at $125 each) are now available. All canvas prints are made on canvas with Canon Lucia archival inks. They are wrapped on boards and stretched over a frame and shipped ready-to-hang. The canvas sides are printed in black, creating a natural self-framing effect, so you don’t have to purchase an additional frame if you don’t want to. The entire piece is also painted with a UV varnish and then heat set for maximum protection and longevity. They are truly beautiful pieces and it is often difficult to tell them apart from the originals. Both types are on the deeper/thicker gallery wrapped boards than our earlier canvases have been, very sturdy and solid, and match the profile of those that are sold at Pop Gallery, etc. If you have any questions about the canvas prints or the differences between the Masterpiece Limited Editions and the Open Editions, please contact us!
