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. This is one of two paintings in a series and is signed in the bottom left corner by insect artist Teresa Bernard.

This small-scaled painting will fit in any constrained location where you wish to add some flair to the walls. Ladybug #1 – Hanging on Tight has been painstakingly hand-painted on a smaller gallery-wrapped stretched canvas. With this kind of canvas, the skilled artist is able to paint on the sides of the canvas giving it a polished appearance, doing away with the need for a frame. But you also have the option of having it framed if you’d like. In any case, it will look lovely displayed in your place of residence, workspace, gallery, or just about anyplace else.

Artist Comments

This painting is the first of two in the Ladybug Series. 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 ladybeetles 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.
