the art gecko movement..



so, i was minding my own bees wax, making art in the studio this afternoon, when i noticed a HUGE gecko perched right on top of one of my curing pieces on the floor. maybe he was sniffing trace amounts of fumes left in the polyurethane? or maybe he was getting ready to leave his own personal 'critique' on top of said artwork..who knows. i managed to grab the digicam and snap a shot of the guy before he waddled back under the filing cabinet. if he ever resurfaces, i'm giving him a paint brush and naming him 'art gecko.' ebay, look out!

He is cute, and clearly is a sign of new and better art to be made. He's definitely not a gecko however, since geckos have suction-pads on their feet. Looks like a Western fence lizard to me. :)

heh heh.
i stand corrected.
my boyfriend allerted me last night, but 'art lizard' just didn't quite have the same ring..

i tried to coax him out of my studio (the lizard, not my boyfriend), but i think he likes hanging out with artist types. hmm. maybe it's a girl lizard. i could name her lizzy. do you know how to tell girl from the boy lizards?

aww i love lizards/geckos. they are so cute. salamanders too! when i was in high school my dad had a family of lizards living in his backyard...i gave them uber-soap opera names- thorton and delilah. but they disappeared eventually.

living in hawaii for 3 years, i quickly got used to 'living' with the island creatures. well , except flying cockroaches and the occasional rat infestation, i NEVER got used to that..but i loved the geckos. had one named 'stumpy,' cuz he lost his tail. must've been a horrible ceiling fan incident. had another that used to sleep in the bathroom night light..sooo cute.

love your cheesy names!
