Tree Frogs and Ants

ART.  The Robin art cards are not yet finished, so I decided to auction an embellished giclee print of my original Tree Frog ACEO sold in 2007. This will be my $1 Auction for March 1st. I'll list the original Robin art cards as I finish them, but this afternoon is for art show prep.

LIFE.  Who knew the story of the grasshopper and the ants was inspired by the Book of Proverbs? 
Take a lesson from the ants, you lazybones. Learn from their ways and be wise! Even though they have no prince, governor, or ruler to make them work, they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter. But you, lazybones, how long will you sleep? When will you wake up? I want you to learn this lesson: A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest--and poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.  --Proverbs 6:6-11
