|James and the insects flung all about inside the peach pit|
|They encounter sharks & escape by tying silkworm strings to a flock of seagulls|
Painting insects seemed to make sense seeing how I've been photographing them in my garden all summer. I first encountered a baby grasshopper on the inside of my car windshield. He chewed on me.
He decided to stick around.
|Isn't he cute? He's even smizing.|
Then he nibbled on my green pepper plant, which may explain the lack of peppers.
He ended up growing quite large, and protective of that 1 single pepper.
To wrap up, here's my usual sketching location on the couch. I used to only have a tiny table lamp, and found myself leaning over to it, so I found this lamp at Cost Plus which gave me great overhead light. It came with little oval oriental shades which I changed out with some grapevine balls I've had forever, and painted them white. The more natural rustic style feels more 'me'.
