Butterfly for my Sister

 close to being finished butterfly, 16"x20", oil on masonite

This is a WIP picture of a butterfly that I painted in oils for my sister.  It's one of the first oil paintings that I have done, and had a blast doing.  This was a present for my sister, so I had to wait a while to post this. It has since been finished and given.

My sister is a big fan of butterflies. She has gone so far as to get a rather exquisite tattoo of a Monarch.

I've always liked them, too. I think I've always wanted a butterfly on my wall, but was more partial to the butterfly specimens (dead butterflies in a box), because of the beautiful colors. I just didn't want a dead critter on my wall.  My solution? Paint 'em.
