INSECT/Old Friends

If I were a moth, this is where I'd be, with my
sweet old friend, by the deep, cold, sea.

Thanks for the comments. What medium are you using. It looks like pastel/watercolor mix. Please keep it up. Your work is like eye nectar.

It's so dream like and full of under water movement, a bit scary, too. Great work and colours. Interesting idea, deep blue sea and insect.

This has a wonderful mood..it's like a daydream. I love the blurred shapeas and the light/dark contrast.

Mmm, a great other-worldly feeling to this. Makes me think of a butterfly version of Lord of the Rings for some reason!

This is beautiful! Who ever thought moths could be so unique and pretty? LOVE mysteriousness of your piece as well! Awesome!

Twisselman said...

This is dreamy and surreal. Simply great.

the heartful blogger said...

This reminds me of a fairytale, dreamy but a touch dark. I like that slightly dark streak that runs through your work, it gives it depth and originality.

Lily and Lucy White said...

Dreamy. That is what I thought. Mystical and dreamy. Lily.

Sea Angel said...

Yes, it does have a surreal vibe to it, makes you think of fairies.
I like this.

Carol said...

The moth to the flame--irresistible.

AscenderRisesAbove said...

Wonderful; again - interesting how it is attracted to the light in movement.

Also enjoy your second tea picture below. Hilarious. so much for quiet time!

Anonymous said...

The lighting is so good...I love this. Again...this would make a great mural. Awesome!! How long did this take?

HARDWAX said...

Two years.
Just kidding, about 3 hours anonymous person,

A moth is perfect match for this dreamy image. I always adore the energy coming out from your work.
