“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you”–Nathanial Hawthorne

I made this butterfly painting using the same collage technique I talked about in the Elephant tutorial HERE.The only difference is that I added painted detail on top of the reverse silhouette area.

I’m currently working on color correcting the image for print in hopes to include it as one of my greeting cards on CardGnome.com.

The painting will be a gift for one of my nieces.

May happiness alight upon your shoulder today!
