Doodlebug is an original mixed media painting being released as part of the 25 Days of Minis for 2019.
Beetles have long been a fascination of mine; the variety of shapes and sizes, the intricate shell patterns, and vast array of colors. My Beetle paintings represent a merging of different species, bits and pieces I find interesting, some closer to actual species than others.
Created on a 6″x6″ wood panel, this one of a kind artwork was handmade by Alecia Miller through a process of layering old book pages in the background and utilizing the transparency of the paints to achieve the light and airy feel of the final painting.
The artwork has been sealed with a protective varnish and is mounted in a black wood frame, ready to display in your home.
