Lovely painting of a moth. We just moved, so I'm sorry don't have our moth guide handy to give you the species.

Thanks for your interest Sarah! All of my moth paintings (except my recent addition on Daily Paintworks) are loosely based on real moths, but I use photos only as a branching off point for more imaginative details. For example, this one is loosely based on a Hyalophora cecropia, and my blue moth painting is loosely based on a Celastrina argiolus but I made the wings transparent, etc.
