This piece by Carapace has been making me grin all week. I suppose that means that I need to buy it. The painting is precious, and I love the description too:

Flower fairies get all the attention when humans start looking for nature’s decorators. But somebody has to paint the deserts, and detail the scorpion. Somebody has to bead the lizards.
Lizards at least are fairly patient if unappreciative customers. And she actually enjoys imposing beauty over their sullen disinterest. But it does irritate her when people overlook the intricate patterns of her reptiles to coo over yet another watercolor sunset. Yes, yes, very nice purple. Look at the lizard!
Okay, I’ve decided — this one is mine; but if you’d like one of her other fantasy prints please check out her shop.
