The Drawing Table: Luna Moth
Welcome to my studio! As is the plan, here is our regularly scheduled Monday update from the Drawing Table...
I was able to put in some studio time this past weekend and finish up my fourth painting to be included in the "Wings" series. This painting is of the Luna Moth, which is native to the Eastern United States, where I lived most of my life. I chose this unique moth because of its vibrant green color and peculiar markings. As a member of the Giant Silkmoth family (it can have a wingspan of up to 4 1/2 inches), this beauty surely deserved to be captured on canvas! I used acrylic paint on an 18 x 24" canvas.
The moth, butterfly, dragonfly, and owl paintings will be a part of a series of "Biophilia" art prints, canvas giclee prints, and greeting cards. This week, I will be scanning the paintings and preparing the digital files for the printer. I can't wait to see the finished prints!
