Orange and Green Snake


The title of this painting is orange and green snake, but I see it as something else. You might see it as a snake as well and by all means believe it is a snake. Let your imagination take control of it.

This painting was made by an extraordinary woman named Tammy. I met her in my class, where I am writing this. I hope you enjoy this art because it is beautiful and wondrous. I see it as a river or swamp or maybe a carnival with fireworks and a ferris wheel, or a swamp with alligators and crocodiles and a dragonfly with bugs and worms.

But you might be totally not relating. Let it be like that and more. Keep continuing your story. Make it yours. Be involved. Art is imagination. After all, earth would be “eh” without it.

Earth – Art = “eh”
