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.
