Cat Fine Art Painting, Feline, Garden, "CAT IN THE HYDRANGEAS!" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe





I love CATS! I have been a cat lover all my life. My dad brought home a kitten for my mom when she was pregnant with me and I have never lived without at least 3 or 4 or more! Having them in the garden is also a wonderful treat. This colorful, playful painting shares the joy of having a feline friend join you in the garden.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, "PURPLE DATURA" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



Purple is my favorite color. When I saw this beautiful double trumpet Datura I knew I would have to have it in my garden! Every year it grows and drops its seeds. Any burst of cold weather in Florida will kill the plant but the wonderful seed heads burst open and the plant rejuvenates itself. It is breath taking and easy to grow!

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Nature, Insect , Butterfly "MAGNOLIA AND MOURNING CLOAK BUTTERFLY" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe






The Mourning Cloak Butterfly is also known as  Nymphalis antiopa.   It is one of the first butterflies to emerge in the spring. The Mourning cloak overwinters in the butterfly stage which is very unusual for an adult. They spend the winter frozen in "cryo-preservation" in tree cavities, beneath loose tree bark or in unheated buildings. When the temperatures start to thaw the Mourning Cloak butterfly reawakens and is one of the first signs of spring.

Illustrative Botanical Art,Butterfly, "MOSIAC BUTTERFLY ON HELICONIA" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe






I enjoy traveling to the tropics and Costa Rica has been a favorite destination for over 25 years. I am fascinated by the odd shaped flowers and dazzling colors. In this painting I decided to paint the Lobster Claw Heliconia with the Mosaic Butterfly resting on it. I really liked the neutral butterfly with the flaming red orange colors of the flower.

Insect, Nature Art, “FIERY RED BEETLE" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe





This watercolor is of an "unknown" Beetle. I believe it is a "Flower" Beetle due to its shape. What really attracted me to it was the brilliant  iridescent red and orange colors.   It was challenging and fun to paint.
