January Challenge 6x6x3

"Nectar Detectors" M Collier 6"x6" oil on panel SOLD

"Son, we found this in your room, and..." Otto Lange 6" x 6" oil on panel

"Female Pills" Jelaine Faunce 6" x 6" oil on panel

PHEW!!!! We made it. Here is our January Challenge.

For a while now I have wanted to incorporate butterflies into some of my paintings. This seemed like a good time to start. Though they were a little trying to paint I am happy with the outcome and hope to find more ways to get these little guys into future pieces.

M, I was just wondering....How'd you get them to hold still for so long???? Don't answer that.

Okay, so does this mean I need to prepare myself for having you send us some butterflies as a future Challenge subject? Actually, when I think about it now, I know exactly what I want to paint with one of these. So, go ahead. Make my day. ;o)

Bring it on!!!!
