|Here the iguana is again, running from my camera.|
This will be a brief post, because I am anxious to get back to my paint. I just want to show you the desert iguana I saw yesterday, sitting in the shade. I have had some trouble getting a good lizard photo, because those lizards are quite shy, especially when I have my camera. (I swear they seem to know!) I now resolve to strap my camera around my neck, until a good lizard shot is accomplished!
Here is the first painting of a tortoise I have done. Another in the "art journal" series. And no, this painting was NOT actually inspired by my tortoise sighting earlier this week. I painted it last week, from a photo I had taken a year or two ago. Isn't it interesting that I painted this, and then had my tortoise sighting? I thought so too. I just realized that many of you are new to my blog, and probably haven't read my past posts about the desert tortoise. So if you want to know a bit more about this amazing creature, click here.
