On this blog I want to share my Artful side.
now this is the wonderful art I remember so well. gorjuss!
I've never heard of that moth. Don't moths usually come out at night? Great job painting him. And I would love to have bluebells in my garden!HAW :)
What a great job this is. I love it. I saw a moth once at dusk in my garden in CA that looked like a hummingbird. Didnt know what it was at the time & never saw it again but what a treat that was. Wish I had gone in and sketched it.
How beautiful and I do love your drawing flowers and all.
Oh beautiful! I love Moths...they are so unworldly - especially the huge ones! Once, while watching an opera in Santa Fe, an enormous one landed on my ankle...(during a particularly quiet moment in the opera)... I have a real fear of large insects.....and gasped in fear - imagining some tarantula or large beetle crawling up my ankle.... slowly, I looked down - and saw this gorgeous (and really big) purple and brown Moth..... I exhaled in relief...and let him sit on my ankle until he was ready to fly off into the New Mexico Evening!Beautiful art!!!Hugs,♥ Robin ♥
You are always on the lookout for all the wonderful creatures that visit you. You did a wonderful job on this and I am jealous of your bluebells.HAW
Like you said Joss nothing much has changed.Lolo, moths do come out most at night but you can usually see them at dusk and dawn. I saw this one at dawn. My DB took a dark picture so I could paint it.Thank you Teri, Cris and Lynn.Robin, what a story. I wonder what kind of moth it was. Don't they feel like a feather tickling you? What a neat story. Some of the large ones remind me of fairies.
What a moth!!! Awesome color and form!
I have seen these before, usually more into summer. They like my coneflower and lilies. You have bluebells already? Lucky you. Cold and rainy still, here.
Ahh bluebells...love them! A great little spring painting sans snow!!! LOL :)
That fella is living the life!
I thought I'd left a comment on this one awhile back... this is very neat. Once in awhile we get a hummingbird moth. What a fun thing to see out your window.
