Butterflies are kind of our spirit insects—they’re colorful, beautiful, and so gosh darn free. So this month, we figured we’d pay homage by making them the stars of a few Paint Nite paintings and Plant Nite projects (before they leave us again until the spring). Check out our favorites below.
Paint Nite picks:
“Butterfly Blue” by Tanya Nuchols
This well-poised butterfly is taking in its last breath of cool, fall air before it migrates south for the winter.
“Butterfly Splash” by Alyson McCrink
Unique brush techniques make colors clash with a splash in this painting of an oh-so-perfect pairing.
“Cool Blue Butterfly” by Andria Moss
And for the photo finish (for paintings), this realistic portrait captures a gorgeous butterfly in time like a creative cocoon.
Plant Nite picks:
“Fly Into Fall” by Bonique Edwards
Train your butterflies to stick around a little while longer, so they can embrace the beautiful colors of fall.
“Succulent Butterfly Garden” by Marian Pham
This transparent little fellah and its newborn are loving life as they sit surrounded by their succulent pals.
“Succulent Drawer with Mushrooms, Sea Glass, and Critter” by David Daykin
Mushrooms, sea glass, and critter…oh my! There’s certainly a whole lot of awesome jammed into one small drawer.
