When it comes to beautiful things, there’s not much in nature that can compare with flowers and butterflies. Both are delicate and colorful. But, it is the fact that butterflies never remain in one place for long and flit from flower to flower that make them my favorites.
For centuries, famous artists have been sharing their butterfly paintings with the rest of us. From the giant fanciful creatures of the German artist Carl Spitzweg to the delicate creatures displayed by two Oriental artists, butterflies add bright splashes of color to any landscape.
