The Red Lizard

Mixed Media on Watercolor Paper

I sketched this from a photograph taken during our summer travels in Utah.  My husband and I visited Escalante.  We were searching for the Spooky slot canyon and somehow ended up in the fork canyon.

We saw many lizards on the trip, but most of them were a dull brown color.  This one was red and perfectly matched the red rock it was perched on.  We couldn’t get over how it managed to climb the wall.  Nature is truly miraculous!
