I've noticed a lot of other insects floating around here on Etsy so I thought I'd give the lowly housefly a bit of attention as well! This is an original acrylic painting, not a copy or print, on a miniature stretched canvas. Hang it anywhere you wish... from a thumbtack on your cork board, in that odd corner that just needs a little "something", in a grouping with other miniature paintings, as an ornament from a houseplant or tree... or give it to an insect-loving friend!

After completing the painting, I coated the piece in acrylic varnish for protection, hammered small wood staples into the top, and attached a brass chain adorned with carnelian beads to hang it by.

The painting is 2x2 inches and 3/8 inch deep.
