Artwork Description

Finally finished (well, actually, it only took two days, here and there) my obligatory 'my child as a butterfly' painting...dunno if I pulled it off, but I know my wife will like it (it's a christmas present). It is my 3 year old, Avery, by the way.

hahah, geez, david, and I thought I was doing well by not incorporating some macabre thing into this piece! Tell Anne I could take her, by the way!

Uh yeah...Anne Geddes called, said something about "You...her...3 o'clock on the playground by the flag pole"? Not sure what that meant but she said to give you the message.

I kid.
This really is nice. I dig the linework in the wings adn colors are rockin as well. But... no little trickle of blood from the mouth? That would be cool. Of course I know how wives & grandmothers can be about that sorta thing.

thanks a lot james, I was worried about the wings, actually...was worried they would look too much like just cut paper or something other than wings.

Thanks for all the comments, everyone...I spent some time trying to get this one right for obvious reasons...I think I sorta succeeded. And yeah, Christine, it is sort of a departure...I do these sort of things now and then, when the occasion arises.
