Spent most of last night painting and drawing. Current beetle paisley done in "Turkey Red" color scheme popular in 1890's Europe:

I have a self-imposed deadline for these and some more designs by this Sunday for a possible collaborative project for a June show.

The above florals are influenced by 18th-century designer Richard Hofmann's decorative florals.
