Sunflower Ladybug Vignette

- by Pamela K Wilhelm

This week's theme: Helianthus

They are named for the sun. Their symmetry is based on Fibonacci numbers. They are native to the Americas, but have traveled widely and have captured the eyes and imagination of people all over the world.



I had Jeremy scan the finished "Temperance" piece for the Morbidly Adorable Tarot:) I really loved doing this piece. I was able to incorporate my love of bugs, siamese twins, and jackalopes -- not your usual combination! It's funny, but I was 17 years old before someone informed me that jackalopes don't exist! I honest to goodness thought they were real. I still do:)

TEMPERANCE -- Morbidly Adorable Tarot -- Original Acrylic on Canvas 16"x20"

When you are joined at the hip like the Twilight Sisters, you learn to negotiate and cooperate in new ways. Balance and harmony are very important to the sisters! The characters roaming the budoir demonstrate their own powers of diplomacy -- a siamese skelly cat and siamese skelly dog share a space with a plate balancing beetle, a meditating grasshopper, and the elusive jackalope! It may look like a circus, but this chaos conjures creativity and works quite well for them!
