I’ve never painted a butterfly.  Although I think they are beautiful, I always thought that paintings of butterflies were tacky and too cute. Today I came across an old book of my mothers with photographs of butterflies. My thought was to give it a try. And I’m so happy with the result!
It looks like I’ll be giving the flower series a rest and devoting some time to painting butterflies.
