this painting was originally inspired by a gate in st. thomas, VI. the painting took on a dreamlike quality - to describe a narrative.
each stage of this piece was an outgrowth of an earlier series of work. the butterflies are about change... and the figure looking through the stairwell is largely in the foreground... looking out and looking through. the stairwell is reminiscent of the stairwell of long ago -- one that i captured about a passage way on a cruise liner.
