Butterflies


i had to demonstrate some technique on a painting for a videographer to photograph.

i chose an old painting to do this -- out came the butterflies.

subsequently -- i worked a little more on it -- and began to like the outcome.

here is a rework of an older, less successful painting.

the other work... is the finished painting of the Italy series.

it's the 25th piece of the small 10" h x 10" w series.

that's a lot of little ones!

each one spacial and unique.

together... they make a wonderful way... separately.. they sing.

How was this created? There is a lot going on but it's all unified.
