Ornitholestes on the Edge of a Morrison Formation River
I was inspired to Create more Jurassic scenes about a year ago when I was privileged to visit the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, if you haven’t been there, you must. It’s easily one of the finest and most prestigious fossil collections I have ever had the pleasure to visit. They also have one of the best collections of Jurassic Fossils from the Morrison Formation of the North American West. Thus about a year ago to date I began pondering a “Morrison Formation Project” for my paleoart. To begin I have selected an interesting curiosity, the Ornitholestes hermanni, described by Henry Fairfield Osborne in 1903. Below is a photograph of the Holotype specimen that is currently at the American Natural History Museum.
