I love the butterfly and its attributes, so perfect, delicate, intricate and full of genius.  Did you know the Monarch butterfly can fly over 2,000 miles?  Such an amazing feat for a paper thin winged creature.  And butterfly wings have over 1200 lenses to see all around.  Ever since I painted  Georgia’s Wings, the steel alloy sculpture which resides in the courtyard garden at Penrose Main Hospital, I have been enchanted with this insect.  It is a favorite subject of mine so expect to see more featured in my work.  This painting developed intuitively using a perfect specimen, the butterfly, and abstracting the  wing design.  The name “Sonata” seemed fitting since the butterfly floats through nature pollinating in a musical fashion.
