I’ve painted plenty of double portraits over the years—couples and mothers with their sons as well as cat lovers and their special kitties among others—but this is my first ever bug-person double portrait. It’s part of my COVID-across-America road trip series, which also includes this surreal whale painting.

You can watch the making of Communing with Fireflies.
