Nest of the Daddy Long Legs

I am doing some paintings for my new show at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, which will also be  a book release party for "Everybody Dies: A Children's Book for Grown Ups".  This piece was done in Acrylic ink on Gessoed paper. 


This was not a planned painting, I just kept laying on paint until it started to look like something.  Have you ever seen a nest of daddy long legs spiders?  The huddle together and look like one solid mass of black, but if you poke at them the big ball of blackness breaks up into hundreds of tiny little spider friends.
