"Swallowtail & Spirea"

The Canadian tiger swallowtail butterfly (Papilio canadensis) and the bridal wreath spirea (Spiraea prunifolia) are both commonly found in gardens throughout North America.

I chose to paint this insect because of the wonderful coloration and pattern of it's wings. The profusion of spirea blooms created the perfect backdrop.

This painting has found a home in Burlington, Ontario.
