Artist Comments

Delicate Arch is depicted against a night sky in this painting. It is a natural geological formation inside Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. The arch stands 65 feet tall and spans 45 feet wide, and is the park’s largest free-standing arch. It is the most visited of all the 2000 geological formations within the park and receives visitors worldwide. The arch has gone by many names over the years, including “Cowboy’s Chaps,” “Schoolmarms Bloomer’s,” and “Old Maid’s Bloomers,” as well as the more mundane “Salt Wash Arch.” In 1934, the arch was given the name “Delicate.”

Delicate Arch was formed by a gradual wearing away of the sandstone by weathering and erosion. The other arches in the park were formed in the same manner. It is the most famous of all the arches in the national park and has become a symbolic icon for Utah.

You can find more information about the arch by visiting this website.

Anyone who has visited this national park would probably agree it looks like the terrain of some faraway planet. I had the opportunity to visit this marvelous park in my younger days, and it was a fascinating place that I want to visit again someday.

Title: Ladybug #1 – Hanging on Tight
Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A close-up oil painting of a ladybug. The red insect is hanging on tight to a leafy branch. The composition is bright, colorful, and cheerful. It would be ideal for a child’s room or for anyone who has an interest in insects. The painting is signed by oil painting artist Teresa Bernard.

This small 6×6 inch ladybug painting is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas. Its small size makes it perfect for small spaces or areas where space is limited. It doesn’t require a frame before display because the artwork stretches around the sides of the canvas giving it a modern look. However, if you prefer to have it mounted in a frame, Ladybug #1 will look great in your home or office, or any place it is put on display.

Artist Comments

This painting is the first of two featuring a ladybug. I actually worked on both paintings simultaneously, i.e., Ladybug #1 and Ladybug #2. I painted the ladybug series on six-inch by six-inch canvases. For such a small creature, I felt 6×6 was a perfect size. I love ladybugs and had been wanting to paint one (or more) for quite some time.

I came across a good deal on some small canvases, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to buy 24 of them. When my shipment of 6×6 canvases arrived, I thought this was the perfect time to paint the ladybugs. Before these two particular paintings, it had been quite some time since I last painted on such a small canvas. It was a lot of fun, and it didn’t take any time at all to finish it.

Now About The Ladybugs!

Ladybugs are wondrous little creatures! They are sometimes called lady beetles or ladybird beetles. They most commonly come in red, yellow, and orange colors, which fade as the beetle gets older. Some species have black spots while others have black stripes and still others are a solid color with no markings. Their bright colors serve to warn birds they don’t taste good.

Surprisingly there are over 6,000 different species of this particular insect. They are beneficial insects because ladybugs eat other insects like aphids that often damage crops and garden plants. As such, ladybugs are often grown commercially and sold to farmers and gardeners.

The life cycle of a ladybug consists of four stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Female ladybugs may lay as many as 1,000 eggs from spring to early summer, depending on the species. It usually takes four days for their eggs to hatch.
