One Coneflower, No Butterfly
I love painting coneflowers. I've done it many times. I had the urge to paint another one but wanted to do something a little different than my previous paintings. I don't know if you've noticed but there are many, many paintings of coneflowers out there, and I think half of them include a pretty little butterfly. (Seriously, do a Google Image search on "coneflower oil paintings" and count the butterflies.) Now, I have nothing at all against butterflies. But trust me, faithful blog readers, I would not subject you to yet another coneflower with butterfly painting.
