Dan's painting and precise anatomical draftsmanship skills were found to be very useful to the exhibition group he worked with at the Witte Museum. For a dinosaur display Dan was put to the job of creating large scale often lifesize illustrations of the various species who's fossilized remains were showcased.
Species shown in the few rare existing photos of the exhibit in the early 1980s include Tyrannasaurus Rex (top), an life sized egg-stealing Struthiomimus group on a mirror for human size comparison (lower left), and a plesiosaur (lower right).
These shown represent about half of the wall graphics prepared for the exhibition all of which were painted over at the close of the exhibition.
All done in oils.
