A butterfly coming out for springtime, yay! My focus was mainly on the chrysalis, honestly, as a reference for another painting I'm doing.... but I made sure to include the gorgeous blue of her outer wings peeking around.
And THIS is a little pepperoncini pepper seedling. And a green globe artichoke seedling photobombing. Aren't they so cute?
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 .
