One of my great joys is doing butterfly paintings! I plant flowers especially for the butterflies and hummingbirds.
When I see these gorgeous creatures,
I snap photos for reference material for more
Lots of fun - enjoy my paintings!
The "Buckeye Butterfly" a dark colored butterfly with its
big eye-spots is a frequent visitor to many yards.
I photographed it
when I saw it on my white daisy Chrysanthemums.
It made such a beautiful contrast
that I wanted to do this butterfly painting.
