Day Two: "A Painting a Day" to Benefit the David Adler Music & Arts Center

"Sepia Butterfly" Series

Update: These pieces are available to bid on until Saturday, November 4 @ 12:00 midnight.

Today's "A Painting a Day" series is inspired by my fascination with butterflies.
I am obsessed with their intricate detail, beautiful colors, and ethereal aura.
I never tire of drawing, painting and printing these delicate creatures!  

Everyday I am able to look out of my studio windows to view my garden. Earlier this spring I spied two butterflies hovering around the beautiful allium blooms and have held that image in my mind. I did a few quick sketches and today those sketches have been developed into the three pieces offered today! 

I also love vintage ephemora, 18th & 19th century botanical illustration and handmade papers. For this series I decided to to take all of these elements and combine them to depict my favorite garden visitors. The images are painted with watercolor on beautiful hand made paper. Pen & ink was added to heighten the detail. The larger piece was painted on paper that is subtly block printed with script in gold metallic ink. 

Simply click on the link below each image to view more details and to place your bid. Each piece is sold separately.
