July went by even faster than June if that was possible! I took a break from quick sketches and focused on painting some silk moths last week. Two reasons for this: It was National Moth Week last week and I wanted to honor John Cody, a master painter of silk moths, who was affectionately known as the Audubon of Moths. He passed away July 11th at the age of 91 and was one of my teachers. Here is a link to a memoriam for him. He will be greatly missed.
