Praying On A Wilted Cross..

“Praying On A Wilted Cross, Mantis.”

I have always had a strange fascination with bugs and insects, most likely because of all the intricate parts that are often overlooked.  I am a very meticulous artist that enjoys paying scrutinized attention to detail, so capturing the lifelike bodices of insects has always been a challenge I like to take on.

Once when I was a young girl in some sort of extracurricular after school class we got to paint t-shirts with whatever we wanted.  I am not at all sure what sparked the creative idea of putting a praying mantis on a cross, with a comic word bubble asking if there was a god? came from (hey, I was like ten!?) But the memory stuck with me and so I decided to do my simpler, grown up version of that memory.  This is it.

The original is a black and white drawing made of graphite and is a bit larger than 11″x14″.  This original is available for $1100.

Prints available as:

11″ x 14″ Matted Print ~ $40.00

8″ x 10″ Matted Print ~ $25.00

5″ x 7″ Matted Print ~ $14.00

Your print will arrive matted in black by default, unless otherwise specified.  I will work with you to the best of my ability to provide alternate mats colors, upon special request.

Thank you, and please enjoy my work!
