A Butterfly's Passion: The Gulf Fritillary and The Passionflower

Gulf Fritillaries and passionflowers go together like monarchs and milkweed. 

see full description & specifications

Gulf Fritillaries and passionflowers go together like monarchs and milkweed.  Although the passionflower (and also the gulf fritillary) is not native to California, it was imported as a garden plant in the 1870s and the butterflies soon followed.  I spied this duo in the parking lot near Spanish Village in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA.  They flitted so fast, it was hard to catch one with my camera... but I finally succeeded.  And then, it wasn't until I visited the Butterfly Farm in Encinitas, CA in early August that I learned their name and story.... and was totally entranced.

This painting was created with hand-painted, printed and embellished found paper, including maps and tourist information of Balboa Park, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Korean newsprint (from the shops on Convoy St.), pages from old Spanish and other SDSU textbooks, and sheet music.  Each piece was ripped and glued down to create a collage that looks like a painting from a distance, but is much more when you get closer.
