Just gorgeous, Geninne! A great idea to boot. Did you use masking fluid on the white parts?

that is an excellent take on the topic - you dont want to be the fly that gets invited into a venus fly trap!

Hi Geninne,

It was so good finally meeting you all in SMA! I am blown away with how adorable your work is! I really love the little stuffed animal creatures too....

Israel's work is simply lovely....he is already so advanced!

I would like to email you a couple of photos so let me know if you have another email address I can use.

Oh, your house is gorgeous by the way!

Lovely, captivating, magical. I love the contrast between the vast night sky and the detailed sticky killer plants. I've just started to play with watercolors, so this is quite instructive.

WOW Geninne, this is GORGEOUS. I think your nighttime paintings are especially effective. This one and your boab tree are my favourites of yours.
