Monarch Butterfly Art Print of Original Watercolor Painting

I have been away from my blog for way too long. Painting, gardening, travel, family fun - so much to do, so little time! Has that ever happened to you? I've saved a lot for you and will have to catch up fast!

I absolutely love watching the colorful butterflies in my summer garden flit from flower to flower! In this painting, a Monarch butterfly rests momentarily on the Blood Flower Scarlet Milkweed, (Asclepias, if you want to get technical!). It's one of this butterfly's favorites! As with most of my paintings, this one is inspired by the many flowers and creatures in my garden. 

This is the first butterfly I've ever painted and I'm wondering what you think of it. I hope to hear from you soon!

  1. Love butterflies, your colour are lovely

  2. What a beautiful detailed painting! Great job here!

  3. I love butterflies so I am loving this! I am so fascinated by butterflies and the monarch is one amazing creature! With a brain the size of a pin head they migrant over 3000 miles to South America then return to the very spot their parent and grandparent returned to! Always a pleasure to see your beautiful art! Thanks Barbara

    I love to watch the butterflies and other bugs in my garden. I recently went to a butterfly exhibit (live) at a local conservatory.
