Ok he’s one of my favorite little creatures on earth and I’m not really sure why. He’s so cute though and I captured him in his native surroundings of Hawaii rather than in a museum which made it all the more fun to paint him….
Although I would go on many walks in Hawaii and encounter these lovable lizards, as mentioned in my blogs and newsletter, one of the best places to find them playing in groups is Fosters Botanical Gardens in downtown Honolulu. Make your way to the gazebo area after a sun shower and your eyes will be delighted to see plentiful geckos bathing in pockets of water and playing on the leaves. They are really quite magical to observe. I have discovered that they are just as interested in me as I am in them!
