Western Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly
18"W x 24"H

This oil painting by Donna Schaffer is based on some photos she took on the backdeck of Chloe's Restaurant in Santa Rosa. There were lots of swallowtails on the butterfly bushes that day so it was easy for her to get some excellent shots.
     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.
