This art piece is inspired by the incredible frilled-neck lizard. I have only ever seen one when I was travelling throughout inland Australia and had to slam my brakes on (on a dirt track) as the lizard showed off his strong and somewhat crazy persona towards my car. As soon as I hopped out, the lizard dropped his head and scrambled off into the bush to fight another day. I tried to capture the emotion the lizard, and possibly myself, were displaying that day in this art piece- a mix of confidence and strength with a side note of crazy and confused.
I’ve made up my own unique paint brushing effect to work in the charcoal. I then let the emotions run free with expressive splashes of acrylics, resin and resin-like mixes. This large canvas piece is ready to hang and sealed with high quality fixatives. Over 200 of my artworks have been safely shipped worldwide; with insurance and tracker included.
