Here’s something a little different and slightly larger than my usual size. This painting of a pair of old boots and a butterfly was requested by a friend. The leather was the most fun to paint and the shoelaces were the most difficult! I really love how it turned out though. It took about 3 layers to complete but was definitely worth it.

Many thanks to jdurham for letting me use her photo as reference for this painting!

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 5 x 7 inches — 13 x 18 cm

This was for the Windows to the Words challenge last May. I think it is my very first butterfly painting. The design on its wings wasn’t difficult but it was a lot of work. I enjoyed every minute of it though, especially since I got to use a lot of bright blue.
