This painting was inspired by Proverbs 6:6. To quote the BLB.org, “The ant has been famous in all ages for its social habits, foresight, economy and industry. Collecting their food at the proper seasons, they bite off the ends of the grain to prevent it from germinating, and lay it up in cells until needed.”
As for me; I simply enjoy bugs! I like to observe them. I like to touch them, (the non-deadly ones, that is). I just love bugs. My kids don’t bring the bugs and lizards and such critters in the house. Mom does!
These three guys are Mexican ants. I was vacationing in Baja and shot these three fellows working this chip across the sand. You can almost here them talking to each other, trying to maneuver the chip.
I hope you enjoy the series as much as I enjoyed observing them, photographing them and finally painting them.
