Merauke Green Tree Python
Oil on Canvas 76cm x 102cm
Look away if you are afraid of snakes. I first got into snakes when my son had a Corn Snake as a child and later, a Ball Python who had a nervous breakdown. Suffice to say that treating a snake with a nervous breakdown takes time and care and I realised how beautiful they are. I painted a number of snakes following that experience and this is a Merauke Green Tree Python that was in a pet shop in Chepstow. It was only tiny and I had an image of what it would be like much bigger. This is the result.
