This is all about camouflage and blending into your environment. The Florida gopher frog shares the burrow of the gopher tortoise with at least 20 other critters, you would think it would get a little crowded in there. The painting is meant to help accentuate the camouflage theme by placing the frog off center, placing the erect dayflower in the piece to draw away from the frog, and using the frog’s natural color to blend him in. This image is part of “The Little Jewels Series”.
I do accept ideas for commissions and would love to talk with you about it. I am lucky enough to paint creatures and locations that inspire me.
If you are interested in a painting, two things are required: patience and the knowledge that it is my vision that you will be receiving, based on information shared between us. If we do come to an agreement, you will receive a one-of-a-kind Stephen Koury treasure.
