Sometimes I like to take a break from painting landscapes. This leads to happy hours in the studio playing with color and shapes. Pearl Crescents are flying right now. Dainty little orange butterflies, they dance and flutter busily in the field. As I worked on this painting I kept in mind their very active nature, wanting to suggest that in the way the background looked.
