‘Gator and friend

This piece of wood looked like a bird. I was painting it as a toucan and when I turned it upside down I saw that it would make a better alligator. 

Here is a painted twig to accompany him. Front and back views.

    I love it. And it makes me want to take a new look at that pile of wood in the far back of the yard!

    Once I made a bird from a piece of wood I found in the park, but I gave it a clay head rather than painting it (the wood looked like the back of the bird only kind of weird that that is what I saw, but…). Anyway, So I really felt the thrill of what you did, seeing something leap out at you from what many others would see as – throw it to the side or in the trash! Wow!

    Hey Nina, I love the gator, but I had to turn upside down to get a look at your toucan too. I felt quite playful and child-like doing it, and it made me smile. Maybe your could call it a alican? πŸ™‚
