Less than 30 hours to go!
With the fundraising deadline closing in, I'm getting into "a beetle-a-day" mode. Here's one I painted yesterday, start to finish. This beetle is available as a miniature print, and will also be in the miniature book. There's still time to participate in Adopt-a-Beetle for the opportunity to suggest a beetle for me to include in the actual Illuminated Origin manuscript and receive an original painting. The cards are being finalized at the printer, and will be ready to mail early next week. I'm so happy to be doing this work. Thank you to all who have donated. Because of you, this will be a magnificent book. I'm ready to get started!
