Insect Art

Daughter Julie gave us the book Pheromone. (2008, Pomegranate Communications, Inc., CA)

The Insect Artwork of Christopher Marley in photographs is an amazing array of botanical images. 

From the bookplate:
Christopher Marley's graceful arrangements of jewel-like anthropods and delicate betterflies transform the hitherto creepy world of insects into stunning works of art.  His keen eye for design combines with his entomological passion to produce mesmerizing kaleidoscopic bug mandalas and striking up-close-and personal single insect portraits....
Here are a couple of photos I took from the pages of this book:

These images will be fun, but challenging, to paint in oils.
