Artist's description:

This Mantis sits in prayer, or is it sitting in wait looking for a meal? All around it, life teems as the daily routines take place.

My drawings are spontaneous as I start with a fine point pen and dip into black ink on paper. I usually use watercolor paper and on occasion bristol board. Once the ink has dried I apply acrylic colors with a fine brush. I then finalize each with color washes to create depth and variations.

Each of my drawings are placed in a simple black frame ready for hanging. I've included a studio shot of other drawings in the frames I use.

All shipping is based on UPS Ground (East Coast to West Coast.) If you wish to purchase this piece I’m happy to set up exact costs based on your location in the U.S. or abroad and re-adjust the shipping amount before your online purchase.
