Artwork Description

Do not fear the wideness of the world, for even o'er the tiniest blade of grass, there resides an angel. Even for the fleeting butterflies, whose lives are mere breaths in eternity, a guardian lingers.
My, but this is possibly the most colorful and bright thing I have ever painted! I had a plan and that plan was totally blown out of the water when I sat to paint, pushed aside the tones I had intended to use, and yanked out the Cadmiums and Cobalts. Poisonous hues do so make the brightest colors, just as the butterflies ward off predators with their colorful wings.
6x10 Inches, Watercolor on Illustration Board.
