decorative earwig insect art painting for sale
Acrylic on canvas, 12x16"

The painting is on a stretched canvas, painted round the sides, with a string on the back, so it is ready to hang as it is, or can be framed if you prefer.

Earwigs may not be everyone's idea of beauty, but looking closely I am struck by the elegant and sophisticated, almost feminine shape. I've painted it in a decorative way, adding patterns inspired by artefacts from National Trust properties. I wanted it to look like one of 'nature's jewels'.
