An uncommon sight. I looked up the symbolism of a white moth and found that it could represent imminent death of a loved one, incurable illness, a lost soul, a cleansed soul, or purity. Perhaps I should have taken a different path. #whitemoth#satinmoth
Anyone else ever seen one of these? Bugs are not usually my thing, but I thought this moth was just beautiful. Unfortunately, it sounds like these guys are considered a pest and invasive around here. But it was so pretty I had to get a picture! #satinmoth#purewhite#sofuzzy

Alot of people asks me why I always use moths in my work and what kind of moths I paint , here's some explanation of my work thought I use alot of symbolis in my work and the meaning differ from each painting :
*Leucoma salicis*, the white satin moth or satin moth, is a moth of the Lymantriidae family. It is found in Europe including the British Isles.
Moth symbolis many things differ if it was religion, calture, spiritual or scientific but generally it means determination, attraction, psychic abilities, and faith. Although moths are nocturnal, they are driven toward light .
The moth spiritual totem associates itself with optimistic people who can find the silver lining in any situation, however dark it may be. Its presence encourages us to develop the ability to seek out the positive in any situation, using our intuition and psychic awareness.
