Ladies Can't Wait
Released August 2004
As I sit here, the days are beautiful and long. The sun beats down
on the Comox Valley, leaving it dry. Leaves have yet to change colour
and winter is seemingly a long way off. Summer is such a wonderful
time of year.
The sunny skies and lengthy days have inspired me to once again
look towards a creature that is sure to put a smile on one’s
face—the ladybug. These magnificent insects are heralded by
gardeners and children alike. They eat the bad bugs and fill kids
with luck and whimsy.
During the winter months, the ladybug finds a cozy spot to hibernate
and waits for the first warming, drying rays of the spring sunshine.
By the time spring arrives, the Ladies grow a little impatient and
can’t wait any longer to get outside and enjoy the sunshine.
Much like the Ladies I, too, am fed up with an indoor life and take
great pleasure in getting outside. “Ladies Can’t Wait”
is my second print focusing on ladybugs.
