Extinction is Forever

My son and I created this painting and had it finished by Michael Meeker from the Museum of Natural History in LA, probably 30 years ago. It is 7 feet wide and 5 feet tall. It hung on the wall of my hospital for 30 years and it was to remind people that they should be thankful, as I am, to have the presence of an animal and be given the privilege of loving and caring for that animal.
