Artwork Description

Spring had just come to frigid Colorado, and my flower catologs arrived... I wanted to paint butterflies and flowers. As I began to rough in the elf, my husband sternly said, "make her look tough!" -- he has never been a fan of my prefered expression/attitude for drawing: dreamy and feminine.
I don't know if I managed to get her attitude or expression right, but I did get to paint my butterflies and flowers!
I'm trying to break myself of the oversized forarms habit. Her's are still not quite right, and I wish I'd done a better job giving her a muscular tummy. Next time, I really need to use photo reference!!

Ooo, I finally found it online. I bought this piece at a convention a while back, and I'm just now getting it framed so I can hang it up. Now I can show my friends online "This is what I bought!" I'll have to watch for your work at other conventions.

:::giggles::: I think she's probably thinking something along the lines of, "Why do the butterflies always flock to me? I don't even like them all that much! Go away, little butterflies, go away."

Cute expression, gorgeous butterflies, and I adore her outfit. And the colors are nice, too.

She looks like she's thinking, "These butterflies better stop flitting around my head or else I'm gonna have to sic my lil' dragon on them." Hee hee! I love that you brought the dragon motif into her armor as well.

She looks tough alright! And all the flowers and butterflys look so sweet, it really makes a great contrast.

Hi Kathleen,
I just visited your gallery and all pics are stunning. But this one is my favourite! It has a lot of expression and the colors are beautifully. Great work. Keep on!!! Rita

Art at its best.
