Miami Blue Butterfly

This little but beautiful butterfly is almost extinct, they used to thrive in Miami and coastal Florida. Maybe if everyone planted some of the plants that attract it, it could make a comeback. It’s so beautiful and unique.
Recent populations have been known to feed on Balloonvine, gray nickerbean and blackhead.
This painting is 8x8x.75 oil and cold wax, the edges are painted. It’s oil and cold wax. Just pop on a nail to hang.
