The Nature Series:
Tiger Swallowtail is one of over 25 original oil paintings in my Nature Series that have been reproduced as high quality prints. Begun in 2011 and still on-going, the series highlights butterflies, bees, birds, and flowers. Connecting to nature is an important part of the way I stay balanced in my life. The images from this series are a way to share that balance with others. Really pausing to observe the colors and patterns of each butterfly, flower, or bird heightens a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world. Nature is all around us if we can only take the time to see it. It’s in city parks, backyards, roadsides and even sidewalks. I like to take time every day to walk and look around at the natural world.
More about the Tiger Swallowtail:
The name swallowtail comes from the long “tails” on the wings which look a little like the long, pointed tails of swallows. The addition of “tiger” to the name refers to the butterfly’s tiger-like stripes, not its ferocity! There are a number of varieties of swallowtails which are fairly common in the United States and have a wide range of habitats.
