"Butterfly Lovin'"

450mm x 300mm x 16mm (17.7" x 12" x .6 ") 

Resin, pigment paste, acryllic paint on wood

While visiting Cairns I visited the Australian Butterfly Santuary and I took many photos. I photographed 2 Cairns Birdwing butterflies mating. I based this painting on one of the enlarged and cropped photos I took. It was facinating to watch them coupled for quiet a long time in their lovers embrace.
