Big Lizards (in my backyard) This is probably my most ambitious project. It started after a student noticed that my lines often resemble reptilian scales and suggested that I work on some snakes. I have also always loved the song, Big Lizard by The Dead Milkmen and this feels like a sort of ode to my love of that song. It's too difficult at this point to step away and figure out exactly why I'm painting big lizards but I really like how they are looking, and how they make me feel, especially when they are hung in one room. Acrylic, oil, pencil and gold leaf on 40x40 inch canvases.
