5" x 5", oil on masonite. Painted mostly with a small flat sable brush (cheap); veining on butterfly wings scratched with tip of spatula.
This little painting is based on a photo reference I took at an arboretum last year. I love macro-photography because it gives the viewer a chance to take a moment to marvel at the beauty that has been created in even the tiniest aspects of nature…it's everywhere if you stop and notice. 😉
