After completing the study (Spectra Nectar) I decided to do a full-scale butterfly piece. This is based on a monarch butterfly just like Nectar was, though I took a few liberties with it.
The background is an abstract that I just didn't love and needed something...more. I am very happy with my decision to "repurpose" my abstract painting. I hope you enjoy it too.

I create my pieces with the best acrylic paints. A non-yellowing, UV protective fixative/lacquer is applied to ensure years of duration and vibrancy.
