This painting celebrates the beauty and diversity of snakes and turtles in Texas, and brings attention to those among the most vulnerable on our highways . It was originally created for an exhibition that highlights the toll of roads on Texas snakes and turtles with Dr. Amanda Stronza and Dr. Lee Fitzgerald with Texas A&M University. Roads kill. The reason we see fewer road killed animals is because so many are already gone. I have these beautiful reptiles facing us, allowing the viewers that may be more fearful of them to see the individual and contemplate their innate worth. With over 81,000 miles of roads in Texas alone, humans need to be proactive in finding solutions such as more and improved wildlife crossings, fencing, and preserving connected habitat.
