Fire and Water, 2014. Acrylic on hardboard, 20x16”.
I’m working on another piece involving a crocodile and decided to explore their scaly wonders further for this month’s theme. Crocodiles, like dragons—which they likely inspired—are associated with several opposite properties: fire and water, death and fertility, strength and weakness. In my research I learned little birds do not eat little bits of food out of crocodiles’ teeth (crocodiles would totally eat them if they tried) and four species of crocodile have been documented climbing trees.
My piece from QDC. Prints and stuff are available over here.
