Hi there Suzanne... and you started the series with my gal Deb's alter ego... "Miss Lady Bug"!She collects lady bug memorabalia!I'll look forward to watching the b ug population ... and your installation grow day by day! What a great idea!Good luck with it! I created a self-published book for Deb for Christmas two years ago... entitled "A Lucky Lady Bug Landed on Me" chronicling her personal history and ours as a couple. Such fun... rspecially on Christmas Day!Hope that your project yields the same joy ... and rewards for "You" Suzanne!Good Painting!Warmest regards,Bruce
Oh the ladybird....a perfect start to a buggy series. You've set yourself quite a task to complete that many by mid October, even if they are small. I'm full of admiration and envy at your production capability.Since my bee, I've been eyeing up ladybugs too. Such perfect rounded shapes and that scarlet is beautiful.
Oh! Suzanne, He is so bold and beautiful. I love your writings also they are always so interesting.
Beautifully painted!! It sounds like a challenging series. Wonderful idea, Suzanne!!
Hi SuzThis is a beautiful lady bug!It reminds us of the lady bugs that migrate to our house every fall. They fly through the forest and come to our house for the winter,,,in Octoberlovetweedles
Isn't he cute...
Beautiful work. The blog is great. Hope you are in recovery.
I love your bugs! (Aside from the wasps, lol!) And these Ladybirds where my favourites because red is my favourite colour :0)I am missing realism so much, but I am trying to force myself away from my comfort zone for a bit. That said, I feel a 'bear' series ahead :0)
Wonderful as usual Suz!Madison
Brilliant idea! It's great when you have a project, the question of what shall I paint next isn't a problem anymore. I am sure they will be snapped up before you finish the last one.Happy bug painting!
Your love of bugs leaves me quaking in my boots, dear Suz. Still and yet, you sure make them pretty!!
My dear Gunkie,I LOVE your bugs!!! And I know you will conquer "The Red Beret" when you feel the time is right. Now ... just keep on gunking!
Oh, that's great fun!! They will look amazing as a group!!
what a lovely bug painting and it sounds like an exciting project Suzanne.... the portrait below i have to say is coming along beautifully... sometimes the question is when is finished really finished? i am working on a portrait and to my mind it is finished but to another it is not.... to me your portrait looked complete but it sounds like you have major plans for it... looking forward to seeing what they are;)
Since I deem ladybugs as the cutest of the nasties I was able to look long and hard at this beautiful painting. Suzanne you are so awesome. Did you know? Cuz you really are. :)))))I adore the shine on the ladybug's, er, shell??? This is going to be one cool installation. You'll have to photograph the whole thing hangin so we can see.
Perfect challenge for yourself, can't wait to follow and see the results. I'm sure we will not be disappointed!!
