Geckos stick to walls, right? Am I being lame for this topic of Illustration Friday -- or 'quirky'? (Don't answer.) The original painting is hanging in my bathroom with the company of a few geckos painted directly on the wall. I took details of different parts of the painting and then 'reinterpreted' them.
I promised not to post again until I was over my whining, though I had no idea it would happen so soon. Toni sent me an email this afternoon to tell me that four of the paintings I sent to her gallery in Erie, Pennsylvania sold today. I can make bail now!

Later: my 11 year old son made further changes. I prefer his.

I like the geckos, and I'm glad your glass is half full again!

Congratulations on the sales! That's rockin' good news:> I think the geckos are fine...and anyway, I prefer quirky to literal any day. I like both versions.

Love seeing the geckos! My sister lives in Hawaii where geckos run rampant and are considered good luck. You BET they stick to walls, ceilings, you name it!
Great correlation with the theme!

Andrea, you are the queen of quirk. Your sliced-up geckos are brilliantly reinterpreted.

Brilliant news about the sale of your paintings, Andrea... what I said in my previous comment about selling artwork, seems inappropriate now.
I love the geckos.

No, your are NOT being lame! This is a great take on "sticky".

I just love the curly tails and the repetition of them. I also like both versions, changing the colour scheme is very Warholian, IMO ;)
