Bugs and Blooms

I have been working on this painting on and off for a few weeks now..surprised how graphic the work is, but have really enjoyed taking my time over some of the detail.
My intention was to have a more contemporary colour scheme for this work..brighter and less sombre in tone than my previous florals...afterall I live in a sun drenched city!
The insects included still echo the inevitable processes of life as exemplified by the theme of vanitas.
Oil on stretched canvas  90 x 90cm
 Since I have been using insects as motifs in my art lately, I have become quite mesmerised by these little creatures..even their little corpses found around the house are quite amazing.
