Perserverant Buckeye Butterfly Oil Painting
Perserverant Buckeye Butterfly - a Warrior
16"W x 16"H

This oil painting by Donna Schaffer is based on some photos she took in her front yard on some Black-eyed Susan Flowers. Schaffer says she hadn't realized just how damaged the wings were of this individual. It was still flying and living on. Very perserverant in spite of the odds, a true warrior.
     Some of Schaffer's paintings are accomplished on-site or "plein aire", other paintings are based on her sketches, color notes and her personal reference photos. Schaffer's painting interpretations range from using thick paint (impasto) on some creations to smooth, detailed observations on others. Contact info is below.
