Egg, Moths,Daisy and Dusty
Hi,I've been painting my IO Moths and just finished them. I like the female better than the male, her colors are much bolder and richer.She is the dark quinacrodone burnt orange and red rose deep one.
While I've painted my painting buddies( Daisy and Dusty) are laying beside me,and yes they are both ill. Hopefully after the antibiotics kick in they will be back to their old selves. I hope so. We've had a week of ups and downs with them.Poor things!
Oh the egg-- did you see the wooden egg in the photo of the moths. What do you think it's for?? Well the Chincoteague Decoy and Art Festival asks the artists to paint one egg each for them to auction to support the show.I'm thinking of using sharpies on it in different colors and squiggles.. what do you think.. talk to you later.
