Art inspired by the Renaissance, Celtic knots, fantasy art, and storybooks. I create traditional paintings, digital art and photograph knights, fair maidens, fairies, bagpipers, flowers and a few meadows too.
This is the milkweed flower found in meadows and by the road side in upstate NY, so therefor it is a wildflower. The flower is a light pink with clusters. The milkweed plant has broad leaves. In the background are little yellow flowers, probably buttercups.
I found this in upstate NY in a meadow where dragonflies, honeybees and butterflies go. It is largely undisturbed as far as people trampling through it. The grass is crabgrass which adds a beautiful texture behind the plant.
Milkweed is the host plant for Monarch butterflies and is best left alone and preserved for that reason.
This photograph was taken in its natural form without removing or adding flowers or other details.
