Butterflies to Abstraction  Watercolors, Acrylics and Encaustic

April 01, 2018 - April 30, 2018
12:00 AM



There will be an opening reception from 2:00pm-4:00pm, Sunday April 8th 2018 at the Rosendale Cafe.

Artist Statement

Initially the show was inspired by my interest in the journey of the butterfly: her metamorphosis from a caterpillar, her relationship to the beatific flowers, and her journey to Mexico or other places where butterflies go. I was influenced by the beautiful colors of the flowers that interest butterflies. I kept painting and adding more and more colors. And then I began cutting up the paintings and found myself with lots of scraps, and then the scraps became precious in their own right, so I put them together into complete pieces. And voila! I hope you enjoy the show.
