Description In animal lore, the snake is often associated with transformation and healing, symbolized by the shedding of its skin. A ribbon snake like the one in this painting lives in one of my flower gardens.
F.T. McKinstry, New England Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement I am a fantasy author who loves to paint. Writing and painting work together nicely; one inspires me to do the other. Endlessly fascinated by woods, gardens, birds, wild animals, the sun, moon and stars, I like to put to canvas, or in words, inner landscapes done in rich colors and a mysterious feel inspired by fairy tales, myth, legend and imagination.
