Nocturnal Nature (Moths, Hibiscus, Cosmos, etc)

Piece description from the artist

Each of the flowers depicted in this work were grown in my yard or generously donated by neighbors. I make the compositions at night (otherwise the cyanotype chemistry coated paper would be exposed prematurely) and that plus the dark blue background was the inspiration for the title.

When I was a child I found a deceased luna moth and thought it was the most magical creature. I was happy to incorporate moths into this botanical work and create the illusion of wandering through a garden at night.
