I need a new name!

NO, I don't need a new name, but this painting does. It sort of developed on it's own, spawned, you might say, by the crazy talk of Linder and Mai-Liis.(See comments for July 15th). Linder also sent me this photo below of....of....well, you decide. She is definately being plagued by giant black bugs.
So yesterday, I added keys to the tiny green paws of the green things in the painting and then, what are keys without a keyhole, I made a tiny doorway in that blank spot at the bottom. I have that 'horror vacua' syndrome.
One thing I haven't mentioned are the borders of the paintings. I really enjoy doing these. They are my versions of the intricate, patterning and colors that are in the manuscripts.

Oh, I think I would enjoy playing with Linder! Maybe I could be her room-mate. My cats would adore the bugs. Good eating!

You surely aren' thinking you can match your previous brilliant name, are you, Imelda?

P.S. Why isn't Linder speaking to me except only through you? Perhaps she'd like me for a sister.
