WHAT A BEAUTY, VINCE. THEY REALLY ARE ARTY LOOKING IN THEIR IRIDESCENT DRESS.
Artist Reply: Thank you very much Sharon!
The distinctive appearance of creatures like this nature often become the costmes of cultures. Regal in appearance they command attention. Art can result then and would be a human reaction to nature's beauty.
Did you have it in the studio? The photo is SO sharp! Great!
Artist Reply: Sort of...my studio is on the river bank with a couple of sheds. I keep porch lights on a night so the tree frogs can feed on the bugs. The beetle is noctornal and is attracted to the light.
Out in the country all the nature is a sort of family to me.
