Earthwork Dioramas

Bird Habitat, American Museum of Natural History, early 1900s

I am toying with the idea of making one large diorama of all the major earthworks in the American West in the manner of a William Wegman postcard painting. I don't know if this is the best example but I am thinking of the paintings where he has half a dozen postcards from disparate landscapes that all meld together seamlessly.

William Wegman, Regency Regeons, 2008

Hannah is willing to collaborate on painting the realistic backdrops. Anyway... I look forward to hearing what you think about this possibility. By the way... I am doing my first performance (EVER) Wednesday night. It's a Soap Box Lecture.

The topic of discussion? PBJs!!
