This is the last in the series of 3 Butterfly pictures. This was for my mum, the other two where for my two cousins:[link][link]
I painted the paper with Ecoline Liquid water colours before starting the cut. All hand cut, this took around 7 hours .... i think.... i don't monitor the time on personal projects (but people do keep asking how long it takes).
Thats it now for a while with the butterfly and heart theme. All the images where done after my Aunts death and its been a project that i have poured a lot of emotion into. My way of dealing with loss is to loose myself in art, and i feel with the completion of this paper cut that it is time to move on to something new.
