Artist's description:

Thank you for looking at my painting. I'm delighted it caught your eye!

The Blue Butterfly theme was inspired by a trip to London Zoo with my mother. We spend much time in the tropical butterfly house watching these elegant, fascinating creatures flutter about and simply look pretty.

My mother has always been of some attraction to butterfly and so on this occasion, like on so many others before, some of the butterflies actually landed and rested for a bit on my mother's clothes. My mother is one of the kindest, most good hearted people I know and I believe that the butterflies can sense her pure soul and know that she would never harm them.

Following our visit I painted three Blue Butterflies, to capture the beauty I saw that day, the love and connection I felt and the sense of spring going into summer. I am strongly reminded of these feelings when I look at the two remaining butterflies in this series and I hope they will bring peace, joy and happiness into your home, too!

To create this painting I used top grade artist's acrylics by the American company Golden and the German brand Schminke on deep edge stretched cotton canvas. The piece is protected with UV filtering varnish and comes ready to hang with D-rings and wire across the back. The painting can be hung as is, because the pattern continues around all sides. However if you wish to add a frame to this artwork, I would recommend a light to medium grey tray frame. I make these frames by hand myself, so please get in touch to discuss.

"Blue Butterfly II" is signed on the front and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. When the time comes to send you your new treasure, it will be protected by acid free archival paper, bubble wrap, cardboard, polythene sheeting, packaging paper and high visibility red and white "Fragile" tape. Safe and secure!

International taxes and duty fees are currently the responsibility of the buyer.
