This is a print of the original painting.
I painted the canvas dark reddish-pink. Then I scraped gesso over the walls with a plastic motel key. Lastly, I “aged” the walls with some Titan Buff paint. I wanted the walls to look like old plaster. The alligator has always had a dream of performing in a ballet. It looks like it was a huge success. When I was growing up, I had two small paintings in my bedroom of young ballerinas. I am sure this influenced me. In "Additional Images" is the girl who made the gator’s dreams come true. Sometimes it is nice to share the stage.
