Yep, it's time for my seasonal found objects, "decorated rubber cockroaches". Since painting has slowed down while I completely finish my three panels I decided to start my cockroach collection. I did these one's last year, but my new one's are pretty much the same. The screaming mouth roach is one of my favourites. Mine of course are nothing compared to the live cockroach brooch which sport real Swarovski crystals or Catherine Chalmers who paints live roaches, and some of them are very cleverly disguised. Personally I think I will stick with the rubber one's, if you don't mind :)
I am a beetle, well that is my animal totem :) To find out what yours is visit here and share your results :)
Lesly tagged me on a meme from Christy at Christy's Coffee Break ..... it's a meme called In the Spotlight. I wanted to answer just one question.
What's your favorite childhood memory?
Sitting on the front doorstep in Hetton-le-Hole (an old mining village) when I was about 5 watching the stars twinkle in the black velvet sky, and eating home made chips (french fries)with malt vinegar mum had put in a paper cone. It was a beautiful night and I felt loved and happy.
Naj at My Depictions did the most ADORABLE painting of Rufus based on the photograph below. Got to check it out and let me know what you think.
