I got a little crazy and painted something really big — or certainly big relative to the size of my studio. I don’t know what it is exactly. It was supposed to be a duck pond, but then this butterfly showed up. Sometimes you just go with the flow.
Notwithstanding its whimsical nature, I made lots of preliminary drawings for it because I just love to draw. And the drawings become like rehearsals. So for instance, the right hand abstract panel was rehearsed a few times. Here’s one of the versions:
It ends up being a separate painting on its own, which is vertical here but could as easily be horizontal. It lacks an solid up or down. It’s 36 x 18 inches.
I made a lot of drawings too. Some of them were studies for the flowers in the central flower panel.
Butterfly Emblem needs a little tiny bit of tweaking before it finds a new home. If you are interested in having its new home be your home — send me a message!
