Lost and Found (Endangered Armoured Mistfrog)

Acrylic on board, 120x90cm
 
The Armoured Mistfrog, once thought extinct, actually survived despite being infected with the deadly chytrid fungus, teaching us that we too as a species can learn to grow, adapt and endure. For me the title’s meaning is threefold; Lost and Found in its environment, as a species and in the painting’s edges.
