    Devoured

    This is the leaves painting that I used trying to learn the glazing and watercolor effects that Cesare displayed. I combined them using Peter's effect. I thought it looked pretty cool so I thought I would share.
    Also we are overcome with the Japanese Beetles right now munching on my roses and Japanese Maple, and that is where I thought of the idea to name it.

    At first I thought it was the Rorschach inkblot test. Your painting is beautiful!

    So - that's where my Japanese beetles went to!

    When we first moved here -we had them in swarms.
    Last couple of years, hardly any at all.
    (Can't say I miss them LOL.. )

    Great job Sandra! Wonderful use of colors.

    What a fine piece! Love the color effects you´ve achieved!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Dear Neil, Thank you! So happy that you liked it!

    Hi Katie! Thank you! Aren't they mean devils?!? You should see the poor leaves of my roses. I need to use my soapy spray soon and quit putting it off!

    Tom, It looks like it, doesn't it? I am so pleased that you liked it, thanks!

    Mike, They usually come in June, but for some strange reason they are late and so many of them-I wonder if it is the hot humid weather-today it is expected to be 104! I wonder why they don't eat my grass instead? Thanks a bunch!

    Hi Scott! Thanks so much!!!!
