Emerald Moth as Totem

There are thousands of emerald moth species out there, and I loosely based this one off the Large Emerald Moth, or Geometra papilionaria. They are beautiful, delicate creatures. They feed off alder, beech, rowan and hazel.

Such a lovely shade of green. It almost looks like
it could be peridot!

It's a pretty one, and one of the most
active peridot mines in the world is here
in Arizona--in a town called Peridot!

Actually the Emerald Moth isn't from Australia, I'm pretty sure that this guy is from Europe, but there are plenty of others from North America as well. :)

Lovely! There are so many detains on the body of this moth. I really like how you swayed the lines of the background, it contrasts the wings beautifully.

The timing to this is amazingly synchronous. X3 I've been working the last month or so with moth magick/totemism. A beautiful portrayal :D

I love your work. It is always beautiful and calming and spiritual. I am so glad I saw your account. You really should join clubs like :icontraditional-artists: and show your work through them so others can enjoy it.

Thanks! :) I might consider it, I'm not a member of many clubs, I always forget to update my work there...
