Why, thank you CI. I really appreciate that. I am a professional artist...sort of. I hold a full time retail job to pay the bills and work on my artwork every spare moment I have. I went to college for art and I am working toward it becoming my only full time career.
This is one I just painted about a week ago titled 'Tattered' with a small description.
Tattered, is a watercolor that I have done off of a photo that I took a long time ago. I would have posted the photo instead, but the film was aged when I had it developed and it came out pretty grainy. This particular butterfly was interesting because his wings were very tattered and torn, but he still flew about like nothing was wrong. I know most butterflies have a life span from a few days to a few weeks at the most and I felt a bit humbled by this little guy. He had obviousley been through a lot in his short life.
