It’s mid morning on the warm tropical shore and the surf is breaking at six to eight inches! So, not wasting a moment, a group of sporty geckos grab their “boards” and head for the surf!
What does a gecko surfboard look like? Well, what is sleek, shiny and available on top of the local beach park picnic tables? Sporks! That’s what they call a plastic eating utensil that is a spoon with fork teeth on it! Yep, and then there are the plastic knives... they make great “long boards” for a gecko. Spoons are a slick alternative for “sporks” for fast maneuvers on the lip of the tiny shore breakers too.
Imagine a day at the beach for a cute critter this size. Droplets of water, not foam, are what cascade from the waves’ crest at this scale. The beach is shared with other creatures like sand crabs that may pop up to watch the spectacle.
After you study this gecko art panorama by fantasy artist Tom Thordarson, there is no way you will ever look at the little things you and at the beach the same way again. Think like a gecko for a moment. It’s really a lot of fun while you soak up the sun!
This particular painting is the Center panel of a three-piece "triptych" and can be bought individually or combined with the other panels (Left or Right).
