Smiley Spotty SnakesWhile I was helping out as a volunteer at the Gesundheit! Institute, West Virginia, USA, I was inspired to paint a snake coiled around a new gatepost. As I was painting away, Wildman Adams came over, saw the snake, and said 'Splendid'!
That's how Splendid the Snake got his name. You can see him in the Murals page of the Gallery.
Once back in Scotland, I felt it only right to dedicate a collection of these cheerful reptiles in honour of this gate guardian.
