Great Ladybug, oil on canvas, 11″x14″. For sale on etsy.
I could be wrong but she might be the same lady featured in my ‘Houseguest’ painting. The one with the lion on her couch. She’s in a different living room, so possibly we have time traveled back to her first apartment, but I think it’s the same lady. Different day, different guest, same problem.
I was in the mood to paint a still life as I haven’t done one in a while. That’s about it. There’s nothing really more to this story except that I ate an unusually large amount of black licorice while painting this piece. I discovered Australian black licorice when I went to the grocery store to get the roses for the painting and it has been one sided love affair ever since. But that is likely of little importance or interest to anyone but me.
