The lifespan of a butterfly ranges between a few days, weeks or certain species can live a year or two.
The job of The Butterfly painter is to ensure however short the lifespan
of the butterfly… is a life is spent in awe inspiring beauty.
A redux of my earlier Butterfly Painter from 2009, different aspect and model pose.
