I was hesitant to put this on Redbubble, as there seem to be so many people in the world with a snake phobia and I have already been scolded three times by friends for drawing snakes …

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Intense! It is a bit scary, you’re right, but it’s a powerful emotion to evoke with a piece of art! I can’t get over the realism of this! How long did it take you to do? (Oh and by the way, I have held several snakes… of varying sizes…) ;-P

    Excellent work Dave!!! Your pen and ink works are always powerful and dramatic.

    We have rattlesnakes here in Penticton, although I have not seen one since I moved here. I’m pretty happy about that too!!! In July a young lad was bitten by some kind of water snake. Apparently they go across Skaha Lake from time to time.

    When I was younger I owned a red tail Boa, Then I found out how big they get and that they eat pigs and rabbits, when they are 6 feet long. I could not keep it for I felt to gilty feeding it mice. Snakes are not slimy they are very smooth and are very gracefull. But if you have pets wash your hands, they have a very good sence of smell. Every snake has its own personality, just like any other animal. just remember some snakes bite at fast movement of the hands or feet.
