Baby Lizard

I visited the Huntington last weekend. While resting on one of the many benches in the gardens I had a moment with a baby lizard.

As you may have gathered from my angry rattlesnake story (not to mention my sojourn into the uncharted territory of county fairs) I’m quite the animal lover. So any chance to get this close to a wild animal, even just a lowly lizard, was a treat for me.

I was surprised how long it sat still for me. After taking the above photo I lightly stroked its back with a fingertip. It put up with my attention for a few seconds, then finally scampered away.

    How’s about pointillist hairdo as inspiration?

Barbara J Carter

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
