Watercolor Polyphemus Moth

Watercolor Polyphemus Moth


Like butterflies, moths seem magical to me. The large silk moths, especially so. Their large shape, their dramatic patterns and colors, the fact they can be glimpsed almost only in the darkness make them special. Spotting one is a secret shared with the universe.

This watercolor painting captures the colors, patterns and textures of a polyphemus moth, from its fuzzy antennae to its furry body to the dramatic eye spots on its wings. Framed and hung in your home it will remind you to slow down, pay attention and notice the magic that exists in each day.
