yesterday, i completed a little (really--it's quite tiny) painting for a mr. thomas h. cook, who heads the richard c. von hess foundation:
it's of both the state flower and state insect of pennsylvania.
i finished this other drawing a week or so ago, after i discovered that heliconius melpomene, the butterfly called "the postman," was named as such due to their tendency to follow the same flight path every day. clever little insect:
the forewing shapes are a bit off, but that's just what you get when you try to draw something from memory. mark tocchet would be disappointed in me.
