alligator pie - original painting
Alligator pie, alligator pie,
If I don't get some I think I'm gonna die.
Give away the green grass, give away the sky,
But don't give away my alligator pie.
Alligator stew, alligator stew,
If I don't get some I don't know what I'll do.
Give away my furry hat, give away my shoe,
But don't give away my alligator stew.
Alligator soup, alligator soup,
If I don't get some I think I'm gonna droop.
Give away my hockey stick, give away my hoop,
But don't give away my alligator soup.
An ity-bity canvas measuring 2.75" by 2.75". I just posted this on my Etsy site this evening!
This little painting did some great crackling that looked to me like alligator skin, hence the name, alligator pie. Not that I've been that close to an alligator. Not that I want to eat alligator pie either! But still, the crackling effect is pretty cool. To finish off this mixed media piece, I added a stamp of a bird, along with a 'love joy peace' stamp that was embossed with silver and then coloured with watercolour pencil crayons.
This little piece of art would do well in a cubicle suspended by two push pins (hence the name 'cube art'), or with the addition of a magnet or two - a fridge magnet.
