I love butterflies myself, however I painted this picture as a gift for my Nan who turned 88 on 29 January.  I remembered that she had asked me ages ago to paint her a Dunk Island Butterfly, so I thought a birthday was the perfect opportunity to make good my promise!
Butterflies to me are like flying flowers.  Everyday without fail I see them gliding through my garden on their endless journey for just the right plant to visit........they never fail to bring a smile to my face.
So "Ulysses" is my first painting for 2011.
