I found a dead Monarch butterfly on the pavement of a parking lot, so I took it home to paint. Later that week, when gardening, I dug up a rusty butterfly hinge. Synchronicity! I find it interesting to paint two objects in small still lives. It invites comparisons. Is there as much beauty in a rusty hinge as a butterfly?
