Study with Mindy Lighthipe, Botanical Fine Art Painting, Iris,Watercolor "PURPLE IRIS WITH SWALLOWTAIL BUTTERFLY" by Mindy Lighthipe


For most of my adult life I have been an avid gardener. My beginning years were in New Jersey where I had an extensive collection of bearded irises. It was always a thrill to see these tall flowers blooming in the garden and even a bigger thrill when a Swallowtail Butterfly would hover it and gather nectar.

The Original is sold, now available as a Fine Art Reproduction HERE

Wildlife Art,Reptile, Nature "Senor Iguana" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe




This iguana painting is not a painting of just any iguana, but my rescued iguana, named Father Mulcahy! Father M came to live with me after he got too big for his aquarium. He was over 4 feet long and loved to be part of the family. I had a house full of rescue cats and he fit right in. He loved to chase the cats throughout the house and bask in the sun on top of the cat condo. He was a sweet and intelligent animal that responded to human touch and loved to watch television.... his favorite show was M*A*S*H! When he passed away I was heartbroken and painted his portrait to show how gentle and beautiful he was. The painting was included in Splash 15 by North Light Books. The original painting is available as well as canvas prints

Nature, Illustrative Art "LITTLE BROWN BAT" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



The Little Brown Bat is common throughout the USA. They are insect-eating bats and locate mosquitos and other flying insects using a system called echolocation. Echolocation is when the bat emits a high frequency sound that bounces off an objects in their flight pattern. It helps them to locate the size of their prey by listening to the sound that echos back to them. Little brown bats are nocturnal and hunt just after the sun goes down.  They can eat half their body weight or more in insects per night which makes them an excellent addition to your backyard!
This painting was commissioned for WildCotton as a t-shirt design. 

Fine Art Prints are Available. Please email the artist.

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.
