A few years ago, Caroline added her voice to our annual calendar debate and we became a Krtek and friends calendar house. At work, if I hang anything at all, sailboats and coastal scenes free my view and organize my meetings. The big bookstores downtown never fail to carry these standbys and I pick one up each January.
But my favorite calendar, the one I found once and never found again, hung a year of beetle, butterfly and spider photos on our wall and I loved it. I tucked that calendar into the back of my art wardrobe* for a rainy day, and I'm glad I did, because it was pure pleasure to sketch this little beetle and his butterfly companion. After I scanned them in last night, I fell asleep and dreamed of a forest full of Luna moths.
*Living in a city, I have an art wardrobe instead of an art studio ;-).
