Hello Everyone,

I haven't posted in quite a while...life keeps getting in the way. However, here is one that I just finished and thought I would post. 12x16 colorfix, asst. softies over alcohol underpainting. C&C always welcome. Thanks for looking.

What a beauty! That background is fabulous and the butterfly's colors are striking on top of it. Great job!

Lovely! I especially like your background- is that wonderful texture in the background the alcohol underpainting showing through?

I also really like the body of the butterfly!

Thank you all for looking and the kind comments.

Patty - Thanks so much.
Barbara - Thank you. The BG texture was actually an accident, I had painted what was supposed to be a "golden glow" but turned out like a yellow blob. So, I painted over it with a sponge and this is how it turn out, a happy accident.
Karen - thanks.
BigK - thank you.
Mike - thank you very much.
