I decided to update an tastefully shabby earthen toned artwork: The Red Box of Beetles. It is mostly unloved, and maybe in need of some glamor and flamboyance. I think I achieved this with the addition of more color, more detailing, and the (tasteful?) use of gold metallic paint!
I have to admit that the beetles in this box are not my most lovely beetles. They are a bit ugly, with strong personalities. People may be put off or even horrified by these particular beetles. I love them, but then they are mine!
And now they have more color, more eye appeal, and a bit more charm. At least I do hope so!
