giant moth invasion

April 13th, 2014


new painting! it’s the house where my mom grew up (with large uninvited insect guest). one day i was looking at pictures of atlas moths and my mother, peering over my shoulder, mentioned she hated them. i prodded a bit to find out the reason for the strong reaction. apparently, her village was overrun with them!

One year we had these atlas moths invading our village. They were fluttering all around the house to try and get in! They left torn and battered wings all over the yard!

i always pictured the invasion looking like this. i’m gonna give it a stir in my brainpan and see if i can’t get a book to pop out.

moths and fascinators

April 22nd, 2009

almost done! these were taken yesterday, today i was outlining. hmm… i wonder if people would be interested in a smallish moon moths tea painting.

of course there is time to stop and mess with a fascinator.
