Frilled Lizard – 2009

Watercolor, pen – 16.5 x 19.5

A rendering of a dream where a large green frilled lizard crawled up my arm and sat on my shoulder.  I took it to a botanical park and placed it in an outdoor terrarium where other people could see it.  The terrarium design was a pyramid of concentric tiers of glass open between each tier— a sort of salad bar— both open to and yet sheltered from humans.  This lizard felt like a muse to me, or the embodiment of my creative impulses.   Note:  She laid an egg.
