Butterfly Dance

11" x 15" Watercolor

Fay is finally a memory, and the sun is actually shining as we speak! It is rather hot and muggy, though -- but at least the rain is gone for awhile!

This painting is in the style of the Dragonfly painting. Bold background color, texture with salt - and I hope I captured the luminosity of the wings (we used saran wrap for some texture there). I like these, but I'm ready to do some more "loose" paintings!

While I was out with Barney today, a beautiful black & white butterfly kept flying all around me! It was so heavenly!
