A Loveliness Of Ladybirds

Okay, I'm out of my comfort zone so stay with me. I've been inspired by the great David Hockney and decided to embrace this IPad. The New Year has not brought a solution to my computer problems but I've got myself the Brushes app and decided to use this sleek little tablet to it's strengths. I've been wanting to do some work around collective animal nouns for ages, to the point where I was risking becoming bored with the idea. So, with kids chilling with the TV and sticker books this morning I've completed my first little sketch. Ladybirds are indeed lovely, but they do have a tendency to pee all over your hand! I'm thinking I'll make an embroidery out of it and also a few prints or cards. What do you think?

    I really like this! Of course, me not knowing much about anything didn't quite get it at first. In fact, my initial reaction was that clearly you had gone mad drawing ladybirds writing messages with their pee (must be males!). However, after the penny dropped and I realised a collection of ladybirds are called a loveliness (how lovely) I immediately loved it and can just imagine having it hanging in the loo for guests to consider while they make like ladybirds. So what's next???
