So here's the funny story. I live in Beaufort, SC and this week in a backyard downtown (about 10 minutes away) a man looked down and saw a fairly large sized lizard next to him. We have plenty of lizards here, but they tend to be on the small side. Recognizing that this was a "foreigner" he and a couple of other folks chased and finally "gently" captured the lizard. That inspired this painting - which is far from complete. Thought I might finish yesterday but didn't happen. Apparently this lizard story is on the Internet if you want to check it out. By the way - it's a monitor (or savannah - as in Africa) lizard. Thanks for visiting. Check this link Artist's Play Room for more "backyard" art!
