Summer of 2018 was exceptionally hot 40 degrees plus for weeks on end. This Double drummer cicada fell out of a tree and landed on the deck in front of me. I picked it up and noticed how beautiful it was. I photographed it laying down on a table cloth as the background which then became the starting canvas. The cicada was also photographed against other backgrounds and a series of artworks were created.
The are available as limited edition artmounts 12'x 16" in size and fit a standard frame of that size. They are also available on stretched canvas. Contact Els for details of size and price.
