Artist Bio: Karen Carr
More than 65 million years ago a tropical swamp alive with dinosaurs covered the geographic area known today as the Chihuahuan Desert. A new painting by artist Karen Carr of Plano shows the ancient landscape as it may have looked when Tyrannosaurus Rex stalked the land along with duck-billed dinosaurus (Hadrosaurs) and Alamosaurus. Quetzalcoatlus, the largest flying dinosaur, ruled the sky.
