Little flea

Okay, after a long pause--taxes are done, studio is almost sorted out.  Well.....not quite almost.

I was sitting at the table with my daughter, sketching from her natural history book and I came upon this nice flea.  I don't know why on earth I found a flea charming.  Maybe it's something like dandelions--we control them with chemicals now, and in their rarity they've become charming.

Yes, but a flea?  Really?  It's true, I haven't seen one in years, but I don't really miss them.  I would miss dandelions though.

I was very happy with this little sketch and I thought it would make a nice painting (that no one would want).
