"Luna Moth," original painting by Michel McNinch
“Luna Moth,” Oil on Copper leaf, 12×12 – Cradled Board. .

An old high school friend sent me a specimen of a beautiful luna moth that had landed for the last time outside her door. What a lovely gift! I have enjoyed painting it on this beautiful copper surface.

See the sides? This is a cradled board. The sides are also covered in copper leaf.

Please take a moment to enjoy the new puzzle!

Thank you for stopping by this week to see the new painting. I have something big on the easel this week. Don’t know if I will be finished by next week, but I promise to post a peek.

See you then,


P.S. Here is some awesome info on Luna Moths (It includes a cool poem).

Indicates that the painting has been collected. : )
