i know that it's really girlie to be in love with butterflies, but i just can't help it. God has used them in my life several times to show me his goodness and beauty. this cafe painting actually turned out much better than i had hoped. i don't always like the paintings that i do there since i'm on a time restraint and it's hard to be social and focused at the same time. i mean no other time do i use both sides of my brain as much as i do there. but this one seemed to come very naturally. you can't tell in the photo, but i'm using more and more found objects to add. like this has yarn and shoestrings for the swirls and torn up cardboard along with my usual paint chips. it sure is cheaper than buying fillers to create texture.
