Frog on a Log

Bullfrog, basking in all its earthy glory
Acrylic on masonite, 20 1/2 x 12 in. (1998)

Another portrait of a bullfrog: this time in fully-lit spleandour of greens and all of the possible earth tones.

The bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) is a very large North American frog, reaching body sizes up to six inches and can weigh up to 1 pound (500 grams). That's a big frog. They are known to eat just about anything they can catch, whether other frogs, fish and even small birds! So, if you have a pet bullfrog, it would seem prudent to keep them away from other small pets in the house.

Of interest, the external ear drum (tympana) is the same size as the eye in females, larger in the male. So, our subject is a guy.
