Praying Mantis















I am all about moving forward. If a piece doesn't work it gets reworked or painted over. I did this piece early this summer using the same process I did for Hobo Kitty. It never felt quite finished, so last month I decided to revisit it. I added the wings, and reworked the eyes and legs. All in all I think it works much better now. I'm thinking more bugs are on the way. Stay tuned!
