Breath of Fire

$30.00 - $400.00


This 11” x 14” piece features Painted Bats (or butterfly bats,) which live throughout Southeast Asia, and are rarely seen.

My drawings & paintings are usually very still, which to me feels calming and grounding. This time I was feeling drawn towards motion and something a little more chaotic. The paradox of living in stillness during lockdown (and working from home,) while feeling like the world around me has gone mad has stirred up quite a feeling. The visual of a bright, colorful, but rarely seen animal seemed fitting to me.

This piece is available for purchase and 15% of the proceeds will go to the @merlintuttlephoto bat conservation efforts. Make sure you select "original painting" in the drop-down menu if you would like to purchase the original. The photographer who took the photos of this bat granted me use of them for this painting.

Prints are also available for pre-order and will be shipped out by 2/21/21 at the very latest.
