I love this moth it's just beautiful, and the cocoon... it's the darndest thing, because I really love the idea of a cocoon, the beauty and purpose of it, but it just looks like a rolled up leaf. I need to figure out a way of communicating its beauty, you know? The perfection of what it really is and how it is almost expressed in the reality of it. I doubt I'm making any sense. But I know there's something there, that I can find it and communicate the idea... #1033
I am an artist living and working in Hillsborough, North Carolina, and have been maintaining this blog as a daily painting project since January 1, 2008. Each of the daily paintings and studies posted here is available on Etsy. My larger and more involved works can be rented from me or purchased through Etsy, from the Broomfields Gallery in West Jefferson, North Carolina, from Bull City Art and Frame in Durham, North Carolina, or from me directly by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
