Spotted salamander. Acrylic on antique book paper.
I’ve never painted an amphibian before! It was fun. Thanks to my hubby for suggesting I paint one.
Did you know it’s the year of the salamander? Salamanders are excellent indicators of the health of the environment. They require a habitat with little contaminants. Their consumption of invertebrates is also important to the balance of their ecosystems, and the environment in general.
