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.

Original Raven Wildlife Painting "Violet-Contemplates-Mortality" by Colorado Western Landscape Painter Nancee Jean Busse



 FRESH OFF THE EASEL...



Another painting in the wildlife series I've been working on. This is a small 9x12 study of one of our resident ravens. I've been wondering about the raven we relinquished to DOW for rehabilitation, so I needed to paint a raven. This study depicts one of the ravens perched on the loading chute of the old corral out back. It's filled with the startling blue of a Colorado summer sky, which is reflected off of most surfaces. It's titled "Violet Contemplates Mortality,"

Raven Bird Art Painting "Violet" by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse

This is a portrait of one of my favorite ravens. We've had a pair hanging around the house for years. In the spring of 2013 our pair had a very successful reproductive season. They showed up in May with 5 fledglings!! One of the fledglings was bolder, more curious, and more raucous than the rest of the brood. All summer she visited me in my studio daily. I named her Violet. By the end of September, all of the fledglings were gone and we were back to our usual pair. I hope Violet is fine and doing well.
