what is this ?


Very quick pastel sketch of some kind of fish bone I found on the beach - I think it might be something from an alligator gar - they are in this lake - interesting texture -- same piece top and bottom view -

6-12 I still don't know what this is but I am beginning to doubt it is a part of a Gar -I have sent my husband on a quest to find out from the locals -

6-13-The locals have spoken they are parts of a fin from an alligator gar the tip is like a flat bone claw - fascinating

This reminds me of when Lewis and Clark would draw and describe what they found on their expeditions. Don't you wish sometimes we could lose the cameras and everyone go back to drawing what they saw?
