"Sphinx"

Acrylics and metallic pigments on wood panel

26 x 38 cm (10 x 15 inches approx)

The wood used as a canvas for this painting is called Pale Moon Ebony, which comes from the fruit-bearing Indian persimmon tree. Various species of Sphinx moth are native to the same region as these trees and are one of their likely night time pollinators.

The frame is handmade, by me, and is constructed from subtly rippled Maple and 4000 yr old Irish Bog Oak.

Frame and painting both signed and dated on reverse.
