A Zebra Longwing

Zebra Long Wing butterfly, Florida's official butterfly


I could have called it “Watching Paint Dry 51”, just to keep the string alive but as Marilyn’s paintings keep getting more and more original I thought maybe it was time I changed my title up a bit.
So I could have titled it something about Florida’s official butterfly, which, like the Snowbird (Florida’s official bird) is noted for it’s especially long life expectancy. Instead of all that I just called it what it is, a Zebra Longwing.
As you can see, Marilyn simply called her painting “Zebra”
Last March while in Florida hanging out with the other official state birds, we came across this amazing butterfly and Marilyn just had to paint it.
You can see more of Marilyn’s art on her website MarilynVanstone.com


Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
