Description During the winter of 2010-2011 we overwintered some tropical milkweed plants and some swallowtail pupas. This male couldn't wait for spring and eclosed in early February. My son named him Daniel. Of course it was too cold to release him, so we kept him as a pet and fed him the milkweed.
Valerie Evanson, Phoenixville, PA Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement Welcome to my Imagekind store! This store features the largest selection available for prints of my paintings, drawings, sculptures and photos.
My fine art explores various mediums through abstraction and realism. Cats, horses, monarch butterflies and old buildings being reclaimed by nature are common subjects. Currently, we share our house with 3 Maine Coon cats and about 40 tropical fish. During the summer we raise monarchs and other butterflies as a family project. You can follow our monarch journey through Facebook as well as find educational info on raising monarchs and milkweed.
