1663 SOLD Monarch Butterfly on the Amaranth

SOLD !  I have been painting this for a few days now.  I grew some milkweed and then watched this one grow from egg into caterpillar and finally into butterfly.  The cocoon was on a branch that got broken so I brought the branch into the house and when the butterfly came out I put it on the globe amaranth flowers.

The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.  $250.

I have also entered this years Inktober for the first time.  Here is the first one, its my dog Scouty.
They have prompts and the first prompt is "Fast."  I used a Sharpie pen. #inktober #inktober2016
