    Im afraid of spiders too. I like them as long as they are not real. Great job on the painting.

    Ooooooo I’ve been there. One of my old houses I lived in had a garden spider nest (and they are pretty big)- I lived in terror for a few years there (checking every nook and cranny). I find little spiders quite cute after that.
    I love how this captures that feeling so perfectly and its still so beautiful- the quilt I love and the little kitty (I dont know if its trying to save her or run away from the spiders too), the candle light and the moonlight outside- I think this is going to be one very COOL series :))))))) xxxx

  • The series continues… There’ll be more pretty soon. Creepy experience that you described there. Thank you !!!

    Why is it that these things always happen when you are trying to sleep? Not fair!

  • Just a coincidence…
