Painted Lady Butterfly original oil painting is painted with a palette knife and a brush and is 100% handmade.
The pretty small tortoiseshell is a familiar garden visitor that can be seen feeding on flowers all year-round during warm spells. Overwintering adults may find resting spots in sheds, garages or even houses. Some interesting facts about them are that males of small tortoiseshells are very territorial, chasing each other, other butterflies and anything else that appears in their space. They court females by 'drumming' their antennae on the females' hindwings.
All sides are painted.
The signature is available on the front and back of the painting.
