I've been very interested in soft fused photography of flowers and this butterfly is another theme i've been exploring. The two work beautifully here with a soft whimsical feel. I have to say that i've watched Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland this week and the soft fused blues of the blue caterpillar, Absolem, may have had some influence on this. Its funny how lifes peripheral images can capture your imagination even if it is subliminal. The painting is created on triple clear primed linen and a lot of the soft linen is shown raw in this painting. It helps to tie it all together.
This comes ready to hang, but could be framed. It would look beautiful either way.
