Butterflies, Foxgloves and Pansies

This is the second large watercolor in the set of three I described in yesterday’s post.  One of the butterflies fits right in with the pansies at the bottom of the painting.

The yellow and black butterfly is a Swallowtail, a very common butterfly here in the Montana mountains.

When I was a child, my mother found a twig with a chrysalis and pinned it to the curtain in my bedroom.  One day in spring, I came home from school, opened the bedroom door, and found a beautiful Swallowtail resting on the window curtain.
