See ya later alligator

Rawrrr! Today I am excited to share something rather exotic with you. An eight foot long painting of an alligator that I created as a custom project for a client. Blair and her husband wanted a statement piece for their home in Louisiana, so this giant sumi ink and acrylic alligator was just the critter to fill their new space.

Inspired by the chunky and ferocious alligator tryptic of Yvonne Hanriout Giraud and Blair's southern roots I set out to wrestle a piece of very curled up, very unwilling to un-curl-up paper that was taller than myself into submission on my garage floor and painted this...

All I can say is, I'm grateful that the last few days of 2013 weren't snowy like the rest of the winter have been. I had a few "warm" hours to spread out and paint this giant gator in my garage in December in Virginia without freezing to death!
