Up close and personal with Butterfly and flower.
Having fun with art brushes, oil, knife, glitter, airbrush, pen, and pencil.

It's a really engaging, fatal attraction for both, I'd say, dear Sandra!
This painting, so gorgeously texturized, seem to transmit quite well this appeal and almost magnetic force driven by the plant urge on reproduction.

The flower is most beautiful Sandra and the effect you have on the wasp/bee it great. Altogether a wonderful painting:)

Nice work Sandra! I really like the subject and the composition. You are inspiring me to try my hand at a butterfly!

Wenkat, Thanks so much, I appreciate that.:)

Cesare, Thank you so much, and for your always beautiful comments too my friend.:)

Katie, Thank you very much for your kind comment. You know, I copied this insect from our book on butterflies and moths. I added the background and created a flower for it. I think it looks more like a bee too.:)

Al, thank you! I have some great DK learning books with oodles and oodles of great graphics for inspiration. I love to paint insects the most.:)

Ah, a member of the troll doll air force. :D This is soooo cute Alexandra. I love it, him, her. . . Very fanciful. Nothing like a macro lens feel in a photo or painting. The scale automatically grabs my attention and I'm completely intrigued. Well done. :):):):):)

He is so cute with those fluffy hairs up and seems so busy that he doesn't mind anything. Very good work Sandy.:)

Thank you D Akey! I think it might be a male, because the males are the most beautifully colored. I am so happy that you enjoyed this.:)

AT, Thank you so much. He is ready for some nectar, and maybe going to dig for it.:D

I love this one Sandy - it should be the cover for a science-fiction novel. Very very cool.

I honestly had to catch my breath when I first viewed "Attraction."
This is an amazingly wondrous and fancyful close up view of the world
of a butterfly. What a striking beauty and so well painted! :)
