While I was in Panama last month we went to San Blas, an island chain where the Cuna indians live. The woman hand sew designs for there dresses called mulas. Here is a pic of one I got for $8.00 its 12"z12" I'm posting it to show the use of colors as well as design.

Beautiful. It would make a great starting point for a painting.

Wow Bill, I was there a few years ago and picked up several myself. I hadn't thought of painting them, what a great idea!

Your butterfly is georgeous. I'd like to see how you render it in watercolor.
