Happiness! The Color of It Must be Spring Green by 

Two photos of the lizards…. blended on background of painted effects made by me. Nikon D5000 18-55mm for the shots. Paintshop Pro 12 to edit.
Inspired by ~
“Happiness? The color of it must be spring green,
impossible to describe until I see a just-hatched lizard sunning on a stone.
That color, the glowing green lizard skin, repeats in every new leaf. …
The regenerative power of nature explodes in every weed, stalk, branch.
Working in the mild sun, I feel the green fuse of my body, too.
Surges of energy, kaleidoscopic sunlight through the leaves,
the soft breeze that makes me want to say the word “zephyr” -
this mindless simplicity can be called happiness."
- Frances, Mayes, Bella Tuscany: The Sweet Life in Italy, 1999
