Arachnid Distraction

I received permission from Piotr Naskrecki to use his beautiful photo of Micrathena cyanospina for an embroidery project.  Isn’t she a beauty? An Orb Weaver of amazing shape and colour.  She’s all drawn out on canvas, just have to stitch now.

Also, as an artist and photographer, I’d like to say that inspiration is a fine thing, however, when it comes to using someone else’s work as the basis for your own, do the right thing and ask permission.  Most people are happy to grant it and it’s nice when people realize it’s not cool to steal our work.
