This is a remake in acrylics from an earlier uploaded image called Water Creature. The butterflies are cut out, painted and glued to the canvas. They were a lot of fun to make.I'm still not totally satisfied with the background. At first I was going for a soft lilac color. That did not enough to make the orb leap out of the painting. Gijs, that is the person giving me painterly advice, told me to make the background red.  So I tried that. But that was just not what I wanted it to be. In fact it was very much not what I wanted it to be. Therefore I was going for purple instead. But since the red turned out so very wrong in my eyes, the purple became more and more blueish. The more I look at it the more I think that perhaps I should give the purple another try. Still not found the courage to do that, though.
