Things have been crazy lately, but in a good way! I finished this small painting a few days ago and this is the first chance I’ve had to post it. On another note, my husband surprised me with this book yesterday. He found it at an obscure library near his work. I have been searching for it for years, hoping to find a used inexpensive copy with no such luck. There is was on my coffee table when I got home from the post office. It's much larger than I expected. The illustrations are truly magfincant. Like many people, I have a huge phobia of snakes and bugs but after viewing them so beautifully rendered with such rich colors and intricate patterns, I find them quite fascinating and absolutely lovely. I'm not scared! I am working on a large piece that can be seen in the background. I started this painting well before I got this book, but the book is” A game changer.” I am very excited to finish it. BTW It’s due back in 3 weeks.
