Thelma the Turkey and Bert the Lizard

“Calm self-confidence is as far from conceit as the desire to earn a decent living is remote from greed.”
– Channing Pollack

Thelma and Bert – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor

What?  You say you have never seen a blue turkey and a giant yellow lizard enjoying a cozy evening around the fireplace?  The turkey is Thelma and the lizard is Bert.  For a couple months in 2008, Eyepaint and I had a running saga, featuring these two stars on WetCanvas.  They shared  many fascinating times.  In fact, Eyepaint even wrote a couple books about their adventures.   They were loved by all.

So, if you ever wondered about my sanity… I may have just tipped you toward the “nuts” side.  😀
