Piece description from the artist

I found this huge moth flying around a truck-stop when I was on a road trip to drop off paintings to a gallery in Knoxville, TN. After chasing it around for what seemed to be forever, it finally stopped on sat on the mud-flap of a semi. Like a good little model, it waited there for me to get great reference photos of it. As soon as I was finished, it flew off with a wing-span of a large bird.

I was so excited to capture a creature I had never seen before. So, I dedicated the title of the piece to my first moth painting: Recoup. I call it that because I chased it around so long that it finally had to lay somewhere to rest and recoup before flying away from a crazy artist that was tormenting him.

This piece comes mounted in a handsome, large antique gold frame. With beautifully distressed and tarnished areas.
