Weekly Oil Paintings

Butterfly #1

5×5″ oil on gessoed panel; contact the artist for purchase information.

Some say the butterfly got its name from days long ago, when windows were open and milk and butter were made in the kitchen. The story goes that the winged beauties loved the milk and cream of the churner. The Germans named the creature Milk Thief. I have several small painting boards 5×5″ square, so I may fill them with a variety of these lovely sky fairies.
