For the Love of Little Critters

While our daughters were playing, Isabelle age 4, found a spider in her room.  She and Aurora age 2 went through great lengths to stalk this spiders every move.  It finally found its way into a small hole in the corner.  It entertained them for hours watching for the return of the now safe and smart spider.  It no doubt came out while they were sleeping and high tailed it out of here.  The experience left me with an interesting art thought.  Mixed media created with ripped paper gesso canvas, watercolor paint, acrylic paint, oil pastels, gel pen and India ink.

  14. Charming! What a great story, too. Spiders are the original weavers of stories in folk tales. Love this one's googly eyes.
