Look Deep

Look Deep (Left Half)
Ink, collage, acetate, mixed media, pablo pencil.
I'm fascinated by the tiny and complex beauty of many insects, and I use their images often in my artwork. Butterflies, moths, beetles and bees...I love them all!
The inspiration for this page comes from a wise and wonderful quotation from Albert Einstein - "Look deep into nature, and you will understand everything better."
The beetle image is so striking that it only needed a simple frame to complement it. I inked over the text, then collaged a frame and mounted the beetle under acetate.
