Interdimensional Apocalypse Bat
"Interdimensional Apocalypse Bat," 2020 11"x14" acrylic on canvas board, by Veronika Rose.
This is part of my Apocalypse series painted during the CV quarantine while on the 24/7 @visiontrain.
I'm choosing animals that I've had a special connection with to be part of this series. Last year in Torri, Italy, I sat by a lake w/ some friends at night and watched bats skim across the surface of the water. For hours we watched as 2-3 bats whizzed by chasing bugs while narrowly missing us. They almost looked like they were dancing with each other & I was impressed by how quietly and gracefully they maneuvered & trusted them in that moment to not hit us while we watched. I love bats! Did you know bats are pollinators and help to pollinate the night blooming San Pedro flowers? Thank you bats for eating mosquitoes and helping to keep the balance!
