Baroque and Bugs

My next effort was rather ambitious. I had an idea for something somewhat surreal. I was not satisfied with the first version with the hand, however (I thought it appeared disconnected to the body) and despite labouring over the painting of it (hands are difficult!), I happily painted over it and added a few more bugs. There's two layers of Latin text on the final version too, although it doesn't show up very well in the photo. The border on the left has been distorted by the camera. This is on a 16x20 canvas. First Version: Final: Basic traslation of the Latin: :It was like that when I got here"!
