Untitled WIP ~ I just started painting this last night and it's 8 x 10 inches, acrylics on a stretched canvas. I used the pearl acrylics for the dots and I'm seeing a sort of gate or fence so far. Who knows what it will look like when I'm finished though. I've been having such a hard time getting in the mood to paint lately (where are you muse??) and it's so frustrating. Wow, such sad news today, first Farrah Fawcett dying, then Michael Jackson, which was a complete shock! I can still remember my Mom saying, when a celebrity died, that the deaths usually come in 3's. She was right since good old Ed McMahon from the Johnny Carson show also died the other day. RIP Ed, Farrah, and Michael. :(
Yikes ~ This fearsome looking creature in the photo below really wasn't so scary...he was actually probably less than 2 inches in length and was sitting in some flowers. I believe he is going to turn into a lovely orange butterfly someday. I used the macro setting on the camera and I couldn't even see the metallic blue colors on those fearsome looking hairy spikes until I opened the picture in the computer. Nature is so neat!
