Silent Spring Swallowtail - Original 5x7

Original oil painting of a Schaus Swallowtail butterfly thought to be possibly extinct from the state of Florida due to indiscriminate pesticide spraying. It is painted trompe l'oeil style on a page of Pittsburgh native Rachel Carson's revolutionary book, Silent Spring. Rachel Carson lived behind my great grandparents in Springdale but I never realized the scope and impact of her writing about pesticides until college. This piece is 5x7" and 8x10" within its glass float frame.
