These butterfly "portraits" are two out of a series of 14 finished images.
Yesterday, I delivered them to Artcraft, here on Salt Spring Island, where they'll hang for the next couple of months, along with some other work.
Artcraft is a summer long exhibition of work created by diverse artists of the Southern Gulf Islands. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by.
The island also has and impressive, self guided studio tour (Salt Spring Studio Tour). The wonderful thing about the "tour", is that with a map in hand, you meander around the island at your own pace, visiting artists at their studios and gallery spaces at their homes all over the island.
