The focal point of this composition is the Northern Alligator Lizard. This lizard is native to the Pacific Northwest but also lives as far south as California- enjoying dry forests, stream sides, grasslands and even mountains.. It can get up to 11 inches in length and ranges in color from mottled grey/green to brown with a light grey stomach. It’s species name, coerulea, means ’bluish’.

In the foreground of this painting are tiny mushrooms called swamp beacons (also known as matchstick fungi). They can get up to 1.5 inches tall and tend to grow in murky marsh on decaying forest vegetation.

Behind and above the lizard, clinging to a fern is a European skipper. It has a wingspan of up to 1/2 an inch and its wings color can range from brown to orange. The species name, lineal, is Latin for ‘small line’.

Corrin, the voice and vision behind Brevity Art. I am a mixed media illustrator and fine artist currently living in Colorado Springs, Colorado with my husband and little black cat. I have a personal studio space in our home where I often paint, dance around with our cat, and run this little creative endeavor.

Human connection, beauty found in nature and all small critters excite me. I translate this excitement through my pencils and paintbrush, allowing peace, belonging, and hope to flow through my work.
