I started the painting with a very black background. Usually, I start painting on a rainbow of colors. This one has two coats of black gesso and 3 coats of India ink.
I think because I have spent a lot of time with my daughter’s dog, Kenobi, his personality came out in the alligator’s love for the girl. (See additional images)

Nancy Wolfe Kimberly, aka Gator Girl, is lover of all things New Orleans. New Orleans is her muse. Wherever she looks she is struck visually and spiritually by her surroundings. Whether it is a Mardi Gras Indian in his dazzling suit, an alligator sunning herself along the bayou, or a quiet cemetery in the evening, New Orleans speaks to her heart.
When she paints she has two goals, to spread healing energy to the city and to spread the New Orleans attitude of love to the rest of the world.
Nancy Wolfe Kimberly is a New Orleans artist living and working in the Uptown neighborhood.
