The last hour of this painting was the most fun: I painted in a sphinx moth (can you find it?), while listening to a lively rendition of “Spongebob Square Pants” on public radio. And there’s nothing like a good bug book to put me in a specially good mood! I keep a small library of local flora and fauna in the studio that I can consult when painting. I’d really hate to paint in some exotic butterfly in a Michigan landscape! I thought I’d call this done, although I might add another bug or butterfly sometime. Better to leave folks wanting more….
Yes, those are two of my cats. That’s Bernie Sanders, the Siamese, on the left and Tommy J. Picasso on the right.
