His Queen done left him for a hive full o' honey? Sounds like she's gotten herself into a sticky situation, bad girl.

Hey there...thanks for stopping by! I forgot you've seen that painting in person.
I picked up all of the illos from the frame shop yesterday. I'm so excited, but nervous! I've spent a small fortune on this show, but it's going to look nice. And I even typed out the stories on vellum and had the frame shop mount them, museum style. Here's what's in the show...( Sprout, Red, Superhero, 2 wallfowers that weren't illo Fri words, mask, help, fortune, peace, twist, snap, hide, clear, moon, remember, might, polar, buzz and phoenix!)
I'll take photos of the studio after they're hung. The show runs Oct5th-28th with a champagne and chocolate reception on the 12th. I'll miss you! xo

These ants are so great! When are you going to write that book with them as stars? Or did I miss it. So darn cute.

How sad and wonderful at the same time. Those drooping antennae say it all. Is this the ant that can't?
Or is he just having one of those days.

Wonderful point of view, great color, and yes...when ARE you going to do a book for these critters.

Oh my! She went all the way to Australia to join a honey ant? She must have been desperate to get as far away as possible ... he is one of those melancholy types and who can stay away from sweetness ... :)
