Have managed to be late again...well, my excuse is I had a little hospital dalliance so my knee would bend. In other words, the doctor cranked the heck out of it (while I was blissfully sedated) and now I can make a full rotation on the bike! Yippeeee! If I thought I wouldn't screw up the knee, I do think I'd do the happy dance! Well enough of that! Insects, eh? I immediately thought of our stink bug invasion and shivered...little monsters have no predators here, they aren't cute like the little fellow on Miss Spider's Sunny Patch, they are noisy, clever little beasts that hide in any little crack or crevice. So...if it's not a butterfly, I don't want to talk about it. So guess what I made? Right! A butterfly! I painted and spattered, did some faux encaustic, glued, cut and something else I can't remember right now...but here's my insect!
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
