Google failed me. I could not (easily) find information about this moth, other than Embroidered and Aqua. So there. It’s an Embroidered Aqua Moth.
When painting series, one discovers so many interesting things about the subjects. Moths are so varied, and the names are wonderful. However, this moth name, though seemingly adorable at first, turns out, is a pest moth. Probably not the last one I will paint.
Oops I did it again – I signed up for another painting Challenge. Considering the chaos of my daily life, I am really not sure how I will do it, but, that’s the challenge of it, eh?
I realized today that I have been participating in these daily painting challenges for about a decade now. A decade! I first started out with the Forgotten Works Challenge in Seattle, and brought the concept with me to Idaho when I moved there in 2011.
My Theme this challenge – Moths on Patterned Backgrounds. Please follow along, either here, on my blog, or on my FB/Instagram Pages (@DanaAldisStudio) or on the blog Leslie set up for the Challenge (under my Space Invaders promo)
