Oil on Board, Framed   30 x 26 cm

When I first saw the designs on the wings of this Marbled Xenica (Geitoneura kluggii), I thought of a landscape, and as I painted it from close observation, it became what looks to me like an abstract landscape.  Which is appropriate, as the patterns reflect the Australian landscape in which the butterfly is camouflaged.
