I really love this painting. To be fair to myself, it should be priced at least twice as much as I have it listed for at $595 and I am not shy at all about expressing this...but...the present economy is what it is...

Whew! That's all I can say.  I am so glad this ordeal is over. I didn't know what I was getting into when I chose this design but it was much more difficult than I would have imagined and feels like it took forever to complete. 

I began by painting everything but the butterfly and it's reflection. I was intimidated by those sections and very resistant. I kept losing my place and my eyes were playing tricks on me and tearing. There were times I wished there were fairies in my studio that would finish it during the night and surprise me with a fairy miracle in the morning...never happened, of course...but I wished anyway...

So that's the story of "Reflections Of A Red Butterfly"...
