Butterflies and Cats Whiskers?

Its a very foggy day in Dunedin today...rubbish for many things, but it provides great flat light for photographing artwork!

A few more Monarch Butterfly brooches now finished and ready for sale ($35 each + P&P).

I paint these using a brush just slightly larger than a cats whisker (both of my cats "Gavin & Colin" will verify this) and take almost 5 hours to hand paint. My 0000 size brushes wear away so quickly that 

I actually started collecting my cats whiskers 

whenever I saw them around the house thinking I might paint with them oneday! Sustainable art practice??

Approx size is 75mm W x 35mm H.
