There is beauty and strength in the butterflies, they keep to their life purpose, though ravaged and tattered they keep on.
I changed up this one, cropped to a tighter composition and splashed more color on. I didn't photograph the original so cannot make a comparison, but this interpretation feels more intimate than the original did.
this one I finally matted and is now ready to pop into the frame.
This one was painted in two sessions. A few years back my niece gave me this wonderful bouquet of sunny flowers. At the time I loosely roughed the flowers in and had left the background white. Recently I dug it out of my portfolio as I felt it had potential if pushed further. So yesterday I pushed and played with color. I am quite happy with the end results.
Wishing all a big smile and a warm hug!
