Description A yellow swallowtail butterfly flits over Queen Anne's Lace, daisies and other wildflowers in this floral scene.The soft background contrasts with a realistic foreground for a romantic atmosphere with the illusion of detail. Nature's colors harmonize with a rustic, traditional or contemporary home or office setting. From a woodland watercolor painting by artist and naturalist, Sharon Himes.
