Fragile Lizard

Collared Lizard
Yet another of my photos is being converted into artwork. And this time, it's for The Lizard and me!

Stratoz is creating a magnificent stepping stone for our garden. Stepping stone really isn't a good description for where this masterpiece will wind up. Ultimately, the heavy glass-covered concrete square eventually will be surrounded by hyacinths, daffodils, lavender, roses, pampas grass and whatever other flowering plants I can manage to grow in our clay, and the stepping stone won't be playing home to feet. As I envision it, our Lizard of Glass will be the literal jewel of the neighborhood.

When we install this work of art, I will share before and after photos, disclose why The Lizard is The Lizard and impart what I know about real-life collared lizards. Now stop snoring!!! It will be fun info!

See the latest progress of Stratoz's work here.


  1. What an amazing image..and can't wait to see the finished piece of 'installed' art!

  2. Snoring? Never. Can't wait to see how this project evolves! (and one can never know too much about Lizards)

  3. Oh I didn't get the feel for snoring either...in fact for a split second I thought he was going to move off the screen...I swear his right leg was in motion! What a beautiful lizard it is!

  4. Snoring? You underestimate your loyal cyber-friends. We appreciate art AND nature and can't wait to see the one and learn about the other.

    This guy looks like he's wearing a custom-made brown leather helmet. He's quite decorative.

    Hmmm...leather helmet. Mr. M had one of those when I met him - an old leather net cycling helmet. Now I'm REALLY curious to hear the Lizard's story.

  5. I know that Lizard! thanks for the shout out and I can't wait till my/your lizard makes it to Colorado

  6. Yes, a very familiar lizard! Stratoz and I have some gluing in our immediate future, so the lizard can come together.

  7. A great photo of a beautiful creature. I'm sure the stone will be awesome!
