Day #40

Walking Stick
6" x 6" oil on canvas panel
Painting #40

I was thrilled seeing these amazing insects for the first time in Texas near the Gulf. In Texas, everything is big including walking sticks at 6"-8" long! Walking sticks can blend into their surroundings making them very difficult to see. Nature in camouflage was my favorite page in the encyclopedia as a child.
