While I had looked everywhere to find the perfect thing to hang on my living room wall, the one wall that just seems a little too bare, I found nothing that quite worked. Either it wasn't the right color, the right size, or the right style. So I've decided to create my own! I'm currently envisioning a set of three, all light green, insect drawings, to be hung together.
I started with the first, which is of my favorite bug, a luna moth. If you've read my blog in the past you may have noticed I'm fascinated by the color and patterns of insects! (If you're a first time reader: First of all welcome! My readers are greatly appreciated! but here you can read up on my bug collection.)
Luna moths are elegant to me. They are my absolute favorite color (which is rare to find in nature) and they are so gentle for a larger insect. I pulled out my colored pencils and started to play! With an addition of a chalk overlay, I made a luna moth that was perfect for my living room! It looks amazing, and is just what I had envisioned!
Now I have two more to go to complete my series! What's Number 2 you ask? I was thinking of a Japanese Beetle! But if you have any ideas for green insects let me know!
...of course I can't take all the credit, I had my artist assistant at hand!
