Monarch Beauty

5x7" Oil on linen panel (Click to enlarge.)
$NFS - This painting has been gifted to a very special friend who raises Monarchs on her back porch.

Just some thoughts: I think I'd like to try this same painting with a blue flower since blue and orange are complementary colors. My camera can't capture the color of the background as well as I'd like.

  1. Despite the rule that blue and orange are complementary colors on the color wheel...I prefer your color selection or combination of colors. The pinkish flower is a delicate color in a wispy shape which provides a sweet balance with the bold yellow/orange Monarch Butterfly! The greenery and background colors mix easily and bring all elements together! Your painting is playful and lovely to look at. LL
