Pink magnolia beetles - By Kari Herer
I have a major thing for magnolias. They are all over my neighborhood, and every spring I am overjoyed to see them bloom… speaking of joy, I am kind of in love with this work by Maine based artist Kari Herer. Pink magnolia petals helping black ink beetles take flight… yep, pure joy.
Maine based artist Kari Herer makes these beetles with pink magnolia petals and her black ink sketches.
