Thrill of the Month
October 2000

This month's thrill was made possible by a ladybug that lost its way and ended up in my apartment.

I've always been somewhat interested in bugs. When I found the ladybug, I put it in a CD jewel case and grabbed a magnifying glass, realizing that this was a perfect chance to take some photos. Here's an example of one of the results.

Looking at the photos, I realized that the background had washed out to white from the flash, so I could play with them. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to study Chinese Brush Painting, so I put together some bare-bones compositions in that style.

I was pretty happy with the finished product, especially the third one down.

This has been the Thrill of the Month for October 2000.
