She’s finished, and available in my Etsy shop!
Sleeps with Butterflies is an original acrylic painting on 8″ x 10″ canvas with 1/2″ sides.
She has a secret hidden behind that Mona Lisa smile. Her face has a beautiful mysterious quality, a playful thoughtfulness. Is she wistful?
This painting is romantic with soft glazing, butterfly wings, and roses balanced with saturated colors and captivating stares. I am really inspired by fashion editorials, beautifully photographed portraits, and subtleties in expression. The colors are soft and vibrant but may look different in person than on your monitor.
Sleeps with Butterflies is a part of a collection of paintings inspired by hazy summer memories and a surreal Florida childhood.
Several paintings are a part of this summer collection:
and an entire series of Overlapping Butterfly Wing paintings.
I’ll update with more this week, as soon as I can get everything scanned and photographed. My prints should be here tomorrow, and I am more excited than a kid at Christmas. This will be the first time my Etsy shop is full! It’s incredible to see it all coming together: I’ll have original paintings, prints, and custom art listed…and I’m working on more art everyday.
