I was outside painting and getting a lot of layers down but it wasn’t turning into anything in particular. Then a little gecko came by and sat next to my painting as if to say “Paint me.” And so I did.

little gecko friend

He was like a little messenger. First I took his photo so I wouldn’t forget what he looked like. Then it was fun to paint him.

I’ve titled the piece “Mi Amigo”, acrylic on paper, 17″ x 21″, unframed.
