About "Emperor Moth"
I found this huge dead moth in the garden and spent time studying this beautiful creature with its velvet wings, large blue eyes spots to ward off predators, fine feathery head and feelers. It would have lived for no more than 4 days before dying. I painted it against a red sky, because moths are nocturnal and start flying after sunset. It was a reminder that beauty also exists in the unseen world
Eleonore is an Artist with SouthAfricanArtists.com based in South Africa.
For me, having been born into a family of artists, painting was always the natural thing to do. From my early childhood my mother encouraged drawing and painting and playing with clay. I drew on any available surface and won my first art prize at the age of 6. Attending art exhibitions and visiting galleries formed part of my upbringing, as did taking Art as a matric subject in 1956.
