A few years ago I put in a few lilac bushes around the house in Rangeley. I've always loved lilacs....especially when they bloom in early summer. And so do butterflies! This summer there was a pair that hung out one day for hours around the lilacs and garden....giving me plenty of time to observe and shoot a few photos. I get quite a few requests for a butterfly paintings so I didn't want this summer to get away before painting one. Finally finished this one up today. Its a female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, a familiar butterfly native to eastern North America. Hope you enjoy it. Prints of the painting will be available on Centerpieces, Trivets and Coasters soon. Keep an eye on the Store and upcoming fall Shows.
This page is where I put stuff that doesn't fit elsewhere.... news, photos, an occassional idea, work in process, etc.
