Butterfly on the Trumpet Vine

Butterfly on the Trumpet Vine
Watercolor on paper, 7.5x5
Purchase Information
These trumpet vines were planted by my grandma on our cellar, and every year they yield these perfect orange trumpets.  They have migrated to a few other locations, one is right outside the kitchen window where I can easily paint them.  The hummingbirds and butterflies love them, and in the last few years, we have hummingbird moths that also flurry around them. This is the first time I have painted them in watercolor, instead of my usual oils or acrylics.  I've lately been thinking of trying out my pastels, too.   Hmmm, I love to experiment!  This painting makes 607 in  607 days.
