Wounded Butterflies

I have really been on a roll, finishing two paintings this week.
The one I finished last night has been standing in my studio for months… not knowing what to do with it.

I decided to add a couple of Butterflies and from there the painting finally started to come together.
It turned out a little macabre but this is intuitive painting… you never no what you're gonna get.

Creativity in full bloom.

This canvas is big… 100 x 120 cm ( 39" x 47"), the largest one I've completed. I love butterflies and use them often in my work.
The colors are bright and cheerful.

Empty Nest

Just returned home after a week in the UK. Our oldest daughter now officially lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, where she will be studying for a year. She will for sure have the time of her life in the beautiful and friendly city.
Our youngest daughter moved to Trondheim, Norway in the beginning of August, also to go to university. My husband and I are now alone for the very first time in 23 years.
I must admit that I do feel a little sad, but also very proud of them and know they will be okay.

Having a lot of spare time can be a positive thing for my creativity.
