The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes,Marcel Proust
but in having new eyes.
My latest painting is a new, smaller version of a scene that I have painted once before. I find the image and the idea equally appealing ~ a monarch butterfly resting on Queen Anne’s Lace, as if by royal appointment.
I’ve just donated my ‘Monarch’ painting to an art auction! The auction is being held next month at Art Metro in Christchurch (NZ) to raise funds for The White Room, a very cool creative space that brings together disabled artists, non disabled artists and interested people to share ideas, learn, and interact through their common passions and interests in the visual arts. I’m so happy they asked me to be a part of this year’s auction.
I’m having my first ever sale on Etsy. Between now and early December I will be featuring THREE paintings every week at 40–60% off the original price. Three different paintings will be listed at very special prices every Thursday. Click on the images to visit my shop.
This week’s paintings are:
