Ants on a potato chip

We’ve been having an ant problem because of the damp weather. The other day my daughter sent me a picture of ants congregating on a dropped potato chip. She thought it was gross. I thought it was cool.

Here’s the photo, magnified a little bit.

I’ve been working longer hours later and I don’t have a good studio space due to giving my daughter my art room and my husband being a paper hoarder. I also can’t really draw at work any more due to it being a “real” job i.e. my boss isn’t my husband any more. But I will try harder.

    Wow! So many. They almost look like chocolate chips with legs. Ants can be quite a problem. 😦

    The photo and your painting are beautiful. Truly. The patterns and repetition make such great compositions. What an eye you have to see it and convey it in paint.
