The Lizard Keeper



She walks with Lizard Medicine, the wisdom she carries from her life-long totem the lizard. The lizard has taught her to trust in her dreams and in her intuition, for she alone has the best answers for the life she lives. The lizard has also taught her to watch over and protect her highest good. She now understands and can recognize when something no longer serves her and with that she has learned how to let those things go with grace and moves on. She knows that she needs to tend to her own needs first, before she can help anyone else. She is the Lizard Keeper.


This painting, “The Lizard Keeper”, is a contemporary folk art painting by Jeanne Fry. It was created with acrylics on a 12 inch x 12 inch canvas. The background is layered with primitive spirals done in yellow ochre, titanium white, and burnt orange with hints of turquoise under the layers. The head and shoulders of the native woman can be seen amidst the spirals, her face raised slightly towards the sun and it’s brilliant rays. She wears two feathers in her hair and a bone choker around her neck. Her lizard totem is painted embraced around the side and top of her head. A spiral sun is painted on the lizard. 

**You can read more in depth about the Lizard Totem on one of my previous posts dedicated to the Lizard here on my blog http://consciousartstudios.blogspot.com/2012/02/lizard-totem-and-its-symbolic-meaning.html

The painting is signed on the front, signed and titled on the back, and sealed with a satin finish. The sides of the canvas are painted black to give it a clean contemporary feel. Gallery wire is installed on the back for ease in wall hanging.
