The Morel Gate by ursulav The Morel Gate by ursulav
Who knows what lies beyond the Morel Gate? It's a dark (magenta) secret, guarded by a fearsomely fez'd lizard and his trained attack slug, Guido.

The composition on this one kinda got away from me--I was going for formal and instead achieved somewhat muddled, but it became one of those things where you stare at it for so long that you're totally incapable of judging it. Sort've like when you stare at a word for so long that it loses all meaning and you have no idea if it's spelled right or not. (This is particularly embarassing when it's a word like "the" but I've done it before...) But hey, any chance to paint a fanged slug, right?

Mixed media, 11 x 14. Prints and original available at [link] as always.

Heh, I find "Attack Slug Guido" particularly humorous because of a real-life connection...

When Woozle (of ~woozalia) & I were only connected by email instead by the hip, he would constantly be threatening to send "Guido" up to protect me from my Negative Voices' nigglings by breaking their kneecaps ...

Good ol' Guido. heh.

you know, for some reason this, plus Lizard Explorer, Lizard Love, and Valley o Wang, all remind me of part of the ET ride at Universal Studios...where you end up on ET's homeworld .... This may be different at the American US, cause I've only been to the one in Japan, but...it was just such a weird part of the ride, compaired to the extreemly awsome set work for the rest, that..I dunno...it stuck in my head. o.o;

And now this, and the others, bring that memory back to vivid, eye-twitching, memory. >.>......Yeah.

Just thought I'd make a note of that...

This is great. It reminds me of the Fraggle Rock story books with the wonderful watercolor pictures.

Love the colors!
