Art: Beauty and Cruelty by Artist Jo Hards
My work is often inspired by the natural world and I love butterflies, especially the colourful European Peacock butterfly (Inachis io), which can often be seen visiting my herb garden. Painted in acrylics on a 5 x 7 inch canvas board, the unfortunate Peacock butterfly in this painting is caught in a large spiderweb, with little hope of escape. The inspiration for this piece is the light and dark side of nature, the beauty and the cruelty that keeps our planet in a delicate balance. This piece is sold unframed, but will fit a standard 5 x 7 inch frame of your choosing. A couple of coats of gloss varnish have been added which give a lovely sheen and will keep the finish looking fresh for many years to come. The colours cannot be fully appreciated on screen. They look much more vibrant in reality. The watermark is for online purposes only and does not appear on the actual painting.
