BUG 13

oil on linen

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.


  1. aahhh, bug 13... a feast for my eyes!!! Spectacular....

  2. Love the shiny, glossy coat she's wearing. The pretties bug eyes I've every seen.

  3. You captured that candy coating perfectly. My mouth is watering...
