Paint Your Dragon

Tiffany looked forward to the annual Red Rocks Summer Solstice Folk Music and Omnispiritual Awareness Festival, so she could go nuts at the body-painting booth.

  1. Those are some nice summer colors! :-)

  2. Tiffany would fit in in Miami’s Art Deco district

  3. Anyone know what this critter is? Anatomy looks exactly like a bearded dragon, but I’m pretty sure they don’t come in technicolor!

    Common collared lizard.

  5. Thanks!

  6. Martha in Washington says:

    I do not think you will find her “common” now! :)

    once again…. the hovertext rules!

  8. OMG this lizard is sooo awesome. Beautiful rainbow child!

  9. Somebody missed the whole chapter on camoflauge.

  10. He is so purdy! I loff heem.

  11. “Omnispiritual”. That really covers all the bases.

  12. P.S. I think NOMTOM might be a closet Druid.

    “In ancient times…
    Hundreds of years before the dawn of history
    Lived a strange race of people… the Druids

    No one knows who they were or what they were doing
    But their legacy remains
    Hewn into the living rock… Of Stonehenge!!!!”

    From Pete Seeger’s “[Gimme that] Old time religion”:
    “We will pray with those old druids,
    They drink fermented fluids,
    Waltzing naked through the woo-ids,
    And it’s good enough for me.”

  15. Camille says:

    Is that a Chameleon? Gotta love a lizard stylin’ some groovy colors! Fabulous!

  16. Elizabeth says:

    Gosh, he’s pretty.

  17. Gorgeous…and a little smug about it, too.

  18. I hitched my dragon to a star…

  20. So I work in the sustainability (“green”) field at a university, and as you might imagine I get a lot of students who are into hippie stuff. Therefore, the caption and hovertext made my day. Well done, NTMTOM! Earth Mother Gaia, indeed.
