Butterfly 3

Micropainting – 7 x 4 cm – frame 22 x 17 cm

Painting: Acrylic on Paper.

I have had, for a long time, a fascination for work of a very fiddly nature. As a furniture restorer, my favorite part of the job are small delicate repairs to damaged furniture such as water marks, burnt marks, indentations and scratches.

In painting, I have discovered that I can create minute pieces, as opposed to the very large ones I used to do, and get even more satisfaction from doing them than anything else I created before.

So I started a series of tiny butterflies paintings.

I am particularly pleased with them as they allow me to delve deep into a minuscule universe, overflowing with wonderful tiny miracles.
