Last Summer of Love

Here's the piece I did for the "After These Messages" show at Gallery Nucleus a few weeks ago. It is known that the female praying mantis bites off the head of the male mantis during mating to prevent him from passing on his genes... or is she just hungry?

Brrr. Lucky for the species females are seemingly in a smaller number. Awesome painting (I'm clumsily trying to teach myself water paint again).

Thanks for the comment: I thought I'd make yoshi a quadroped for such a reason.
