Monarch and Pentas

Monarch and Pentas
5 x 7
Pastel on Pastel Premier Sanded Paper

I was looking for more flowers to paint in anticipation of the upcoming Arists and Artisan event at the Wildflower Center. I searched my cache of photos for Purple flowers looking for some Spiderwort. As I searched, I happened upon this old photo and landed here instead - kind of like the butterfly I suppose. I landed. But this painting isn't about the pink penta flowers, it's about the butterfly

I guess you could call this a warm up for my future series to come that includes butterflies. I ordered some butterflies to be models for my paintings and I'm looking forward to painting them. This was alot of fun.
