Click on the image for a close up.  Notice how both figures stare out at the viewer in a direct way. This is almost something of a male version of Madonna and Child, especially with that hint of a smile of the young man's face.

Boy with the Butterfly large framed, watercolor

Boy with the Butterfly

My son has a very fey look about him and when this butterfly (Polygonia) landed on his head, I knew I had to paint this subject.  The butterfly stayed there for about ten minutes, in which time, I took several photos from different angles.  This is the second painting I've done of this subject; the first one was just a head and shoulders shot with the light from behind. 

To increase the ephemeral quality of the subject, I hightened the color and deliberately chose the other objects and things going on in the picture.  This is a larger size than I normally paint, presenting it's own challenges, but I believe that the subject demanded it.
