8" X 10"
acrylic on stretched canvas.
I often use my own photographs as reference for my work.
My family and I visited the Living Desert a while back and experienced the butterfly garden for the first time. It was breathtaking, there were flurries of Blue Morph butterflies all around. I must have taken over 100 pictures. The butterflies and the background are blended from two separate photographs.
This is one of my favorite paintings. The butterfly wings have a subtle sparkle I achieved by using iridescent medium.
