Still Life, Watercolor Fine Art Painting "2 EGGPLANTS" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



Purple is by far my favorite color! I had fun doing these 2 eggplants as a part of my online watercolor class demonstrations. I used lots of strong color to get the bold dark almost black purple and hardly any color on the variegated one. It was challenging and I enjoy pushing myself in different directions, learning just how far I can push the paint. This listing is for the original and ships free in the continental USA. All other inquires please contact the artist for shipping costs.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Nature,Butterfly "MILKWEED MONARCH" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe




The milkweed plant genus (asclepias) is the life source for monarch butterflies. The monarch lays one egg per leaf and can lay up to 500 eggs. The milkweed will host the monarch through all its life stages. It belongs to a group of butterflies, called Danadiae, which are called “milkweed butterflies.” The milkweed plant contains a sticky, milk-like fluid that has a bitter taste. This helps the monarch protect itself from predators.

"Lively Lupines III" Original Abstract Lupine Watercolor by Janice Trane Jones

It's Lupine time again and this is III of the Lively Lupine Series. This original watercolor measures 11 x 15 unframed but the purchase includes a white 16 x 20 mat. If you purchase and reside in the US I will ship it flat and in it's mat so you only have to purchase a 16 x 20 frame. If you reside outside the US I will have to roll the painting and the mat is not included in the price due to high shipping costs of a large flat piece.
To view or purchase paintings go to janicetranejones.com or etsy.com/shop/jtj1227. janicetranejones@aol.com for commissions.
