The Dead Fly Project is a series of one hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, whatever - depicting a dead fly - same fly - over and over again - but different each time by Beverley Conrad. She experiments with different mediums and executes them according to her whim at the time. Sometimes they're pretty, sometimes scary, sometimes funny, sometimes political, and sometimes a fly is just a fly.

Dead Fly 11 - A large pastel
Dead Fly 11
pastel on paper 14"x 18"
Once again, I tried working with pastels and think this one is slightly more successful than Dead Fly 9. I may revisit pastels at some future date, but like I said, drawings are costly to mat and frame, so I don't know.
