I've never seen an orange lady bug, and in point of fact, this little critter is called a Ladybird, I think. I looked it up and she hails from a family of beetles. What a vibrant little candy coated shell she has and her little eyes look like licorice nibs only shaped like eggs. Just so cute and as snug as a bug in a rug, whatever that means.
I'm working on a new series of bug paintings that I'm very excited about, but I am longing to paint a nice still life at some point soon. We'll see.
