late summer

This is my latest artwork, mostly completed on a hot Summer day. It started with a poor Cabbage White butterfly that I found on the grass , it had very tattered wings and I thought it a shame to leave it there to let nature take it’s course so I brought it inside and placed it on the Michaelmas daises . I painted it as quickly as possible  before it  and the light  died and next morning planted out the flowers in the garden to immortalise this special season.p1070439
