Come a little closer...

Stink bugs, dragonflies, assassin bugs and moths. I love to paint bugs! I love the way their bodies fit together, like wearing a coat of armour, with their big googly eyes. I am going to do another version with butterflies, so they can sit together on a wall. I have hung this temporarily on a wall that reflects the light from our front windows and it shines onto the street, you can see it as you walk past our house. A little beacon shouting “yoo-hoo look at me!”

My painting days will be numbered for a while as I focus on being with my little ones over the summer. I will try to do as much painting as I can in the evenings while we still have summer light, if I don’t do something creative each day I tent to get a little jittery!
