I Painted A New Species I Wish Existed – Meet The Mouserflies

I’m fascinated with the idea of hybrid species, and I love imagining an animal that exists completely unbeknownst to us, fluttering around in the dark and unseen by human eyes, but all around us. Perhaps they are gathering up tiny scraps we’ve left behind or just resting for a moment on an old tin, long forgotten in the woods.

This is the idea that led me to paint the first “mouserfly”. I only intended to do one painting, but one led to another and another, and a couple years later, I still love painting them. I paint with acrylics on wood panels, and use the tiniest brushes I can find!

Absolutely adorable, I bet there are lots of cute hybrid ideas. I'd like to just Thank God for a second, for not giving snakes and spiders wings! ERMERGERD!
