"This larger-than-lifesize oil is one of two or three paintings in my studio that most frequently provokes comments, usually “did he really have those bugs on his face?” Angel S. is a good friend, a regular member of the Naked Drawing Group and a frequent model, and he collects dead insects; we selected a Death’s Head Moth, scarabs and skull beetles as well as that impressive taranula for their sinister overtones. In fact, all the insects in the painting were found in and around San Diego, even the tarantula, which gave me something to think about..." Binnie, May 1, 2021
