Spring Morning

Spring Morning, monotype, oil on rag paper, 12 x 16 inches 

It’s been a year since “The Butterfly Series” had its beginnings, painting with granddaughter Katie in Merano, Italy. And I still find myself drawn irresistibly to the theme. Looking forward to the larger series of these paintings debuting at the National Arts Club as part of Spring RisingOctober 2-27, 2017

Butterflies have always seemed to personify Nature’s gift of fleeting beauty. I’ve been at work on a series of monotypes which try to capture that evanescent moment at its peak.
I’ve been experimenting with combinations of oil paint and water and oil-based printer’s ink with various combinations still underway.

I’ve always felt a kinship to the bravery of growing things as they return to us each spring, against all odds. One day I thought emerging with protective armor might help it all along.
