Tropical creatures fascinate me. Their colors and their solitary nature attract my interest and often find themselves the subject of my paintings. I love the idea of silently watching, witnessing the chaos of life as races frantically by with little regard for anything. In “El Vigilante” (The Watcher) I have tried to capture the solitary nature of witnessing and the humor and ridiculous outcomes that are often part of the chaos….the unintended consequences of good intentions.
The painting is small, like its subject: 11 x 14 inches. Framed it is 18.5 x 22 inches. It was executed in liquid acrylic and varnished resulting in a smooth flawless surface. “El Vigilante” will add a splash of color and will make an excellent accent piece in any area with a small space to fill.
