oil on linen
I'm running out of clever bug references. Or depending upon your point of view, perhaps I never had any.
These 20x20's are the perfect surface for these puppies...er critters. Being a victim of the literal, it never occured to search out a less smooth linen surface, but happily, the larger linen stretched I ordered is just perfect.
This particular creepy crawler was painted and posted in the not to distant past as Bug 4 on 10x10", but with the arrival of the larger canvases, the incredible colors on his candy coated outer shell begged for a second visit.
Himself is home today and was rather rude to me when I questioned the wisdom of my subject matter for the three-hundredth time. It basically boiled down to "just keep painting."
