Invited to Dinner-watercolor on paper. Butterfly Milkweed
(Asclepias tuberosa) along with a Large Milkweed Bug (Oncopeltus
fasciatus). Butterfly Milkweed is native to New England, but it is rare
today.  A wonderful open field in East Lyme, Connecticut is home
to a small patch of plants, and inspired this painting.  The Large
Milkweed Bug is also a New England native and is very easy to find
in the late summer and early fall. $300
