Large Tree Nymphs
Butterfly Paintings by carol may
- See the leaves flying in the background of this painting!
These "Large Tree Nymphs" are from SE Asia and they were feeding on False Hydrangea.
I saw them" at the Butterfly Rainforest in Gainesville, Florida.
Its lots of fun as well as educational to go to butterfly gardens. If you have a public butterfly garden near you, go for a visit.
Monarch on Daisies
The Monarch Butterfly is the most well-known and the favorite butterfly in the
Daisies are my favorite flowers. What a joy putting these two favorites together in "Monarch on Daisies".
Last year I had lots of them come to the Butterfly Weeds in my flower garden. The caterpillars ate their fill, metamorphosed and took off on their amazing journey.
It was a privilege to see large numbers of Monarchs in
Mexico while they were migrating. How awesome!
This painting is on a sturdy 11x14" archival Aquabord. After the painting was thoroughly dry it was sprayed with a UV resistant coating that seals the watercolor paint.
watercolor paintings on paper have to be matted and framed under glass.
This painting can be framed without any glass.
It is painted with the freedom of expression we feel when we see butterflies. This one of my favorite butterfly paintings!
