Shadow box # 20 ~ A Lizard's Life

This one is 9"X12". The lizard design is one I came up with in my series of twelve animals drawn in the proportions of the golden spiral.

The painting was started with charcoal and white acrylic on Bristol board. Color was added with watercolor and pastel.

There are two carved wood "beams" painted black and sanded. A leaf preserved with acrylic gel medium sits on the top right shelf. On the bottom are two land snail shells and a painted masking tape ball wrapped with yarn.

The frame has been painted black and sanded.

This shadow box was a hit with twelve-year-old boys at the Chautauqua show this past weekend. They recognized the "golden spiral" immediately.
