Wet Paint..

Presently drying in the studio is this recently completed oil on canvas which will soon be travelling interstate to it's new owner (Gen) in Melbourne . Colder than usual temperatures, several changes and thick paint meant the work took a little longer than usual to dry sufficiently for the trip. Gen is a Melbourne graphic designer who commissioned the work some months ago. Her patience has resulted in a piece which takes it's lead from a previous charcoal drawing painting of mine (The Black Butterfly) which is currently hanging in a gallery in Texas

The working title of this piece is "The Blue Butterfly"

A close up of the surface paint which is slightly more blue than the above image suggests.

The completed work approx 100 x 74cm in oil on canvas.
