Insect, Nature Art, “FIERY RED BEETLE" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe





This watercolor is of an "unknown" Beetle. I believe it is a "Flower" Beetle due to its shape. What really attracted me to it was the brilliant  iridescent red and orange colors.   It was challenging and fun to paint.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, "GREEN CHICKS AND HENS" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



Hens and chicks are a favorite in my garden. I love they way they group and readily multiply as they spill over rocks and create a wonderful ground cover. Here I played with variation in mixing greens. It was interesting to see how many shades of green were in such a small section. I magnified the drawing to give it impact and stand out. Such small things are often overlooked.

Wildlife Art, Nature , Frog "TROPICAL LEAF FROG" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe






Cruziohyla calcarifer is an uncommon treefrog, sparsely found throughout low and mid elevation forest from Honduras through north western Ecuador. It lives in humid forest, and breeds in water filled tree-hollows or stumps. Encounters with this frog in the rainforest are uncommon, and only a few groups exist in captivity, primarily within the confines of zoos and institutions within the US and Europe. At first glance they look like the Red-eyed Tree Frog, but they are larger and have pale lavender-grey eyes with a yellow rim. They spread their webbed feet when jumping making it possible to glide for distances.
