Swallowtail and Spirea (SOLD)  - Canadian Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly and Bridal Wreath Spirea by Colette Theriault
  Swallowtail and Spirea (SOLD)   (2013)
Subject: Canadian Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly and Bridal Wreath Spirea
Dimensions (inches): 4 x 6
Medium: pastel on archival paper
Description: The Canadian tiger swallowtail butterfly (Papilio canadensis) and the bridal wreath spirea (Spiraea prunifolia) are both commonly found in gardens throughout North America.
I chose to paint this insect because of the wonderful coloration and pattern of it's wings. The profusion of spirea blooms created the perfect backdrop.
