This is actually a painting that I "started" a year or two ago. I painted the lady bugs very roughly on top of an old painting, brought said rough lady bugs into photoshop, cleaned them up and made them into wall sticker art (see below). Well the other day I was re-arranging my studio and came across the half done rough and decided it would be fun to finish the actual painting (vs finishing it digitally as before). Honestly I like it better. Wall sticker art made for certain limitations. For example I didn't want any long, skinny protrusions as they can get torn off or folded onto themselves relatively easilly when made into vinyl stickers. And dang it my bugs need legs and long antennae. Anyways this is all part of my prep for Katy Days, my annual excuse to go to Parsons, Kansas, see old friends and hock some art. Looking forward to it!(Memorial Weekend).
