Saw this little guy at my sister's in N. Carolina. I looked him up and it said he's also called a "Clearwing" because his wings turn clear. He was sooo cute and stayed right there for several minutes.

I was searching for a new idea to paint and came across a picture I'd taken of this pot of flowers on my deck. It had such beautiful shadows and contrasts in dark and lights which i haven't added yet. I love Nasturtiums and had planted the seeds one year. Hope I spelled it correctly...I'm painting this in the evening class.
I'm waiting for the printer to finish cards of my new painting. I wasn't sure what to paint next, but started the next six week class with a new painting of a picture I took a few years ago at a garden walk in Chicago. I'll post that later as the painting develops I had to spend time with the sketch of the stairs with work in perspective to get it right before I painted it.
