This piece is part of a small series I did on Love bugs. It all started during our Love bug season here in Florida when I noticed a large group of them on a tree in my backyard. I started taking photos of them - I couldn't believe how many of them were out there, all in the same location.

There was an art contest I knew was coming up for a local furniture store

I wanted to enter. The only restrictions were it had to have a furniture and love theme to the piece. I started thinking of all these titles for pieces - Soulmates, Love is in the Air, Looking for Love. I wanted to create

pieces for all the titles and ideas that just flooded my brain.

The first one was - "Looking for Love". It was a small Artist Trading Card. "Love is in the Air" was the piece created for the art contest and won First Place!! "Soulmates" is the last piece in the series.
