Fido-Hawaiian Cane Spider

Pete Janes

Portland, United States

Artist's Description

Daniel Smith watercolor on Arches 140lb cold press.
This is a Hawaiian Cane Spider which came to me as a stowaway in a box of organic pineapples. She was tarantula-huge, but a relatively slow mover, so she was easy to handle and get into my “model box”. Once there, she proved adept at modeling, but it was a shot similar to this final pose that got me. Her eyes (all eight of them) were the most expressive I’ve ever seen on a spider.
