Wildlife, Owl Fine Art Painting,Nature Art “Hawk Owl” The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



Surnia ulula is a non-migratory owl that usually stays within its breeding range of the Northern Hemisphere from the USA into Newfoundland. During harsh winters when food is scarce it sometimes travels southward. It is one of the few owls that is not nocturnal, being active only during the day. It’s size and the fact that it flies during the day has made many think it is a hawk, the the common name; Hawk Owl.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, "GREEN CHICKS AND HENS" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe



Hens and chicks are a favorite in my garden. I love they way they group and readily multiply as they spill over rocks and create a wonderful ground cover. Here I played with variation in mixing greens. It was interesting to see how many shades of green were in such a small section. I magnified the drawing to give it impact and stand out. Such small things are often overlooked.

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Butterfly,Nature "PURPLE VANDA" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe




I love purple and I love orchids! I moved to Florida in 2011 after living in New Jersey for 50 years. The climate in Florida is semi-tropical and orchids literally grow in, on and around trees! They are super fun to paint, ranging in all sizes, bizarre shapes and fantastic colors. In this painting I decided to show how this Vanda orchid grows off a tree branch. The branch was done in graphite so as not to distract from the beautiful flower. I couldn't resist putting in a butterfly just for even more fun!

Wildlife Art, Nature , Frog "TROPICAL LEAF FROG" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe






Cruziohyla calcarifer is an uncommon treefrog, sparsely found throughout low and mid elevation forest from Honduras through north western Ecuador. It lives in humid forest, and breeds in water filled tree-hollows or stumps. Encounters with this frog in the rainforest are uncommon, and only a few groups exist in captivity, primarily within the confines of zoos and institutions within the US and Europe. At first glance they look like the Red-eyed Tree Frog, but they are larger and have pale lavender-grey eyes with a yellow rim. They spread their webbed feet when jumping making it possible to glide for distances.

7"x10" Watercolor/Sold
