Don't know the names of either the pale green flowers or the butterfly,
but I really liked both so I put them in a painting.
The butterfly has bluish, semi-transparent wings,
with black outlining which gives them a stained glass window look.
6" x 8" acrylic on canvas panel
Decided to paint the butterfly in a smaller painting and
Painted for DPW's "Yellow" challenge. I actually saw his scene
on a drive in the beautiful Oregon countryside.
A ramshackle old wash house with a very overgrown garden
with Azalea bushes growing over the roof.
Wet clothes hanging on the clothes lines.
Painted this for Dana Marie's Rendition Me This challenge "Canard".
We are to paint a 'rip-off' of the challenge painting,
similar but with our own spin on it.
I wanted to bring out the metaphysical environment
of this duck's life through the water, air and colors.
