Artist's Description

This work was featured in the group “Out Of the Past”

Small work: “Le Papillon” charcoal and pastel on Mylar, 9 × 7″ This young French student artist wandered into my studio one evening during our open studio event. I liked her look and thought she would be a good model for my Black Butterfly series, so I asked if she would mind posing for a few photos. We had a fun visit, and she showed me her lovely Moleskine sketch journal and we also exchanged emails.

I took quite a few great photos of Melodie, so I most likely will do another small work or two from them. She was a delight. Also, I am happy to realize that “Melodie” is the Muse of Music.

These small studies present their own challenges. I like to complete them in one sitting and the scale is difficult for detail, but I feel that I did capture the subject’s hopefulness and creativity in this small work.

Presented in a vintage tabletop swing frame.
