This was painted in acrylics. It was inspired from a photo of my nephew and his daughter. Sometimes I am taken by a photo and see it as a painting. This was one of them. Sometimes nothing has to be said when the image is so expressive.
This was painted in acrylics in a modern style. My daughter-in-law Casey has a birthday coming up. My daughter Joy suggested I do a painting of one of Casey's favorite photos of her Mom and sister when they were growing up in Paris. I love doing paintings that mean something special to people.
If you are an artist have you ever painted over another painting you did you did not like? That is what happened to me in this case. I used plaster and acrylics for the foliage and acrylic painted foil paper for the butterfly.
