Sunflower and Butterfly

Because the weather was so nice in the past few days, I spent some time in the garden, painting. I was inspired by all the beautiful colors of spring, to paint a happy butterfly, sitting on a sunflower.

Halfway to finishing the details of the flower, a bee landed on the paper. Should I take it as a compliment? πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much! It’s my favorite part of the painting, but the flower was much more work! When I stepped back, after adding the last details, I almost wanted to hold it on my finger πŸ™‚ Have a great day! x
