Mary Newcomb IV

More of Mary Newcomb's observations; Top: Orangetip butterfly about to land, Bottom: 'Orangetips swaying on grass'. 

"I am told of a cloud of orangetip butterflies . . . that the plant was thought to have orange flowers and became dull, blue grey thistle like, when the orange cloud dispersed, I'd like to have seen it." Mary Newcomb 


  1. I love that you are putting Mary Newcomb on here! She is easily one of my favorite painters of all time :) I also like how she wrote about what she was painting/going to paint. So very interesting . . .
