I'm busy ordering new prints of my latest work, returning emails, buying frames, and dreaming of all the new paintings I have yet to do. But I thought I'd stop in and post a photo of one of my newest works, a painting of the Tiger Moth Family. The Arctiidae is a large family of moths with around 11,000 different species. Here, I've selected a few of my favorite ones...including the largest one in the family, the Giant Leopard Moth.
I just like the subtlety of the colors of these moths: the beautiful yellows and oranges. I added their swirly names underneath and must say that the painting looks very elegant in the ornate white frame I found at a garage sale a while back. I've been waiting to use the frame for something special...if only I had a picture to share! I'll take one soon so you can see how great it looks behind glass.
Oh! And I just ordered prints of this painting. So now more than one person can enjoy these small beauties hanging on their walls!
