Wildlife Art Insect, Nature "MADAGASCAN SUNSET MOTH" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe






The Madagascan Sunset Moth looks like a butterfly because of its beautiful iridescent colors but it is classified in the scientific world as a moth. Moths and butterflies belong to the classification of Insects called Lepidoptera. Lepidoptera is a latin word which means "scaled wing". When magnified under a microscope the scales of the wing structure are easy to see. For this series of paintings I did the background by looking under a microscope and drew the individual wing pattern and structure in pencil while placing the colorful butterfly on the surface in watercolor. The original has been sold but is available in 3 sizes of fine art reproduction canvas prints. Please look through the rest of the gallery to see other images from the series. They make a great sets for your home decor.

Sunflower still life, 14x18" Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

I have retuned home from another exciting workshop with Elio Camacho.  I went to work right away, trying to imprint his wisdom on my brain.


I worked hard on this one, trying to retain the bold brushwork and saturated color that makes his technique special.  I think it is a good start for me, but I have lots of area for improvement.

Practice makes perfect.  I am pretty sure he would tell me to make the flower on the table look less like a flower and more like paint.

Original Landscape Painting "Peace and Solitude" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Peace and Solitude is a pastel done en plein air. Nesting close by the shelter was a sandhill crane with its flashy red head checking me out. She isn't in this pastel, she was just beyond the bird watch. What a lovely thing to watch, she had a home with quite a view!

This painting is SOLD, however prints are available HERE

Original Florida Coastal Landscape Painting "Serenity on Sanibel" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin


This is an oil painting. Approaching the Sanibel Lighthouse from this direction on the pathway, I relished in the colorful, late afternoon skies. What a glorious site and an interesting vantage point of the lighthouse with the dappled sunlight peeking through the trees and onto the shell path.

Abstract Seascape Painting, 8x16" Palette Knife Painting, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting

We are happy to be back in Florida, and I wanted to mark the occassion with a new abstract.

Purchase here
I really enjoyed creating this art.  Sometimes it is nice to just get in the zone, no particular plan, and let the subconscious take over.

I love playing with paint and these represent some of my favorite colors.  I didn't plan to do a seascape, but it feels like one, especially of the tropical waters in the Caribbean Islands.

The last few months have been hectic for me.  This is just what I needed to calm me down.

Have a great day and thanks for reading my blog.

Wildlife Art,Reptile, Nature "Senor Iguana" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe




This iguana painting is not a painting of just any iguana, but my rescued iguana, named Father Mulcahy! Father M came to live with me after he got too big for his aquarium. He was over 4 feet long and loved to be part of the family. I had a house full of rescue cats and he fit right in. He loved to chase the cats throughout the house and bask in the sun on top of the cat condo. He was a sweet and intelligent animal that responded to human touch and loved to watch television.... his favorite show was M*A*S*H! When he passed away I was heartbroken and painted his portrait to show how gentle and beautiful he was. The painting was included in Splash 15 by North Light Books. The original painting is available as well as canvas prints

Impressionism Seascape,Coastal Art Painting "Unexpected Pathway" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin




 Softly swaying, this lone palm caught my attention. Have I ever walked down this pathway  before? The sand is so soft and deep.  It appears I'm the first to travel this path in a while,  there are no prints  before mine. The atmosphere has a misty quality,  almost as though a  gentle rain is about to burst  from the Heavens.   Finding this pathway...pure joy!12"x16" Oil on Canvas

Tropical Landscape Painting | Florida Painting | Daily Painting | Small Oil Painting | Jupiter Island by Carol Schiff | 12x12x1.5" Oil

This post is dedicated to my very good friend and pseudo sister, LaVerne.  I love you LaVerne, feel better soon!

Everybody has dreams, and this tropical landscape painting is one of mine.  When I was growing up in Ohio, on the cold, below zero mornings, as I hopped out of bed, I had this image in my mind.

Purchase here
275 + shipping

Balmy breezes, palm trees and a beautiful beach!  What more could I ask for?


With the severe winters we have been having, I am sure lots of people have the same dream.  I have to admit...I have never second guessed my decision to move to Florida many, many years ago.  Well, maybe a little in the middle of a hurricane!

I hope you enjoy this tropical landscape painting which is a scene from Jupiter Island, Florida.
