Swallowtail Caterpillar 8"x10" Print
This is a print made from my original acrylic painting. It will arrive to you in a plastic protective sleeve with a hard backing. It has been signed by me.
When I first started becoming serious about drawing and painting as an adult, I focused on flowers since they're beautiful and most people like them. But my true love was still with insects. I hesitated to add them into my portfolio since I didn't want to scare people away at art shows! I stared with charasmatic insects, like butterflies, to test the waters. Those did ok, so I decided to showcase the beauty of the caterpillars as well- no caterpillars, no butterflies! These are the ones people constantly compained and moand that "they're eating all my parsley." Yeah... that's what they do. Plant more to share. They also love fennel and dill, which is shown here!
It is always humbling when someone tells me they see beauty in something I've drawn, where they may not have otherwise seen it. That's my goal in a lot of the work that I create. I hope this makes people look twice when they encounter the insects in the real world as well. Appreciating the beauty of our local flora and fauna may hopefully inspire people to create habitat for insects and pollinators right at home with native plants.
