I checked my butterfly reference book and it may have been a Scudder's Patched Butterfly common in the desert and prairies of the Southwest. That is the reference I used to paint this beautiful flying flower to remember our moment of appreciation of this late summer's visual treat.
I have digitally manipulated my painting for the 'bokeh' effect... This was a fun challenge. The original unaltered acrylic painting is available at my Etsy shop.
Thanks for looking.
