Pelican Nation
A Conceptual Pop Painting by Mark Mitchell

“A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His mouth can hold more than his belly can...”

—Dixon Lanier Merritt (1879-1972)

Bigger. Better. Faster. Louder. We want it all, and we want it now. But, like the pelican, we sometimes want more than we can handle. So... how much is too much?
