bugs in my lunch bag
I've never been particularly interested in bugs. But it seems they are beginning to take over my blog. First it was the "attack of the flesh eating ants," then "the ant bully" and today, "two bugs I found in the rain." I was out walking Pokey last night and could not resist picking up these guys. Not only are they big, but also iridescent. I knew right away I wanted to paint them, but didn't have an opportunity last night, so I packed them in a plastic baggy and took them to school today in my lunch bag! During lunch I drew the bugs (this sounds really gross, doesn't it?) and afterwards I painted them. I was very nervous about the shadows, but I'm happy with the way they turned out.
