The Butterfly - SOLD


Did this today for the Windows to the Words blog, which I found from one of the side panels on Autumn Leaves blog. Thanks again Sherry for helping me to find more art challenges & inspiration!

The May theme is butterflies and 4 beautiful reference images were posted. I loved the pastel color on the White Admiral. This is done in a semi-abstract mode (which I've been doing quite a bit lately).

Oh Nancie! This is so lovely!! And speaking of challenges, Behind the Scenes blog on my side bar blog roll is doing a challenge due June 1st. I just saw it yesterday and am thinking of giving it a whirl...

Thank you all for your kind comments. Thank you James for this wonderful challenge this month & those great references you gave us to work with.

Sherry - I did check out the Behind the Scenes blog - ooooooh, that challenge seems a bit difficult. I have never really worked with glass & reflections like this. It's interesting - just not sure if I can get something done by 6/1 - we'll see. Thanks for the suggestion.

Wow, I love your style, Nancie. I love your use of color and how you made the background so interesting. Beautifully done.
