The Butterfly Patch, oil and enamel on canvas 100 x 120 x 2 cm
The Butterfly Patch, a twisted rose bush, pink flowers blossoming in the sun. Wild roses, petals blowing on the wind, thorny branches and sweet perfume. A perfect place for butterflies to dance.
The Butterfly Patch is full of contrasts. It has an abstract expressionist sky with fractured lines and shimmers of gold. Dripped and splashed paint creates random shapes to suggest thorny branches. The flowers are rich in colour and have beautiful blended tones throughout the petals. Delicate butterflies hover in the sky flitting and fluttering around the wild roses while deep green leaves add freshness and focus to the abundance of flowers. Flecks of gold paint in the undergrowth catch light and glisten as you walk by the painting. The Butterfly Patch brings light and happiness in to a room. It is ready to hang.
