scabious flower butterfly


Oil on Board
50 x 50 cms, 19.5 x 19.5 inches

My life as an artist is not just about painting but also about growing and cultivating a garden.  For several years I have been creating a wild garden which has ox-eye daisies and scabious flowers. This oil painting was inspired by the delicate flowers of Scabious in the wildflower garden.  In the summer, these are full of butterflies, so in this artwork I have camouflaged a butterfly into the background.  Throughout the summer months these flowers bloom and the insect’s flit between the flowers and as they turn their wings toward the light, they are barely imperceptible.  It is not until you walk through the flowers that they all fly up in front of you and you notice the wildflowers that they have been visiting.

This oil painting is part of the Exploring Miniscule series where I want to show the tiny on a large scale.  Many do not notice the tiny flowers lost in the grass or insects sheltering and feeding upon them.
