"Flower Lovin' Mantis" Original Acrylic Painting
I challenged myself with this painting. I'd been marinating in my comfort zone of petals, and "Flower Lovin' Mantis" got me to try painting a bug for the first time! The painting was inspired by a picture taken by the dahlia farmer Snap Dragon Flower Farms that I came across on Instagram and knew I had to paint it.
The original is 24" x 36" on gallery-stretched canvas. It has been treated with a matte coat varnish to protect the acrylic paint. It is wire-backed and ready-to-hang.
