Tiger Swallowtail 8" x 10" acrylic
This painting was originally completed in 2008 as a mountain meadow. F0r a couple of years I looked at it knowing that it needed something else and finally decided on a tiger swallowtail butterfly. This painting will also be available at the upcoming Waterfowl Festival.
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
