Flutter by, oil on linen, 40 x 37cm

This is a painting about the passing of time. I painted my daughter looking at herself in a mirror. She has a serious tone and expression and is almost adult in her demeanour. The butterflies represent a fleeting moment in time. The butterflies are no longer alive yet captured in time within a frame. The dress she wears is her great, great,great grandmother's, Jessie Newbery. It represents the value of things past and their legacy. My wish is for the viewer to pause and appreciate the moment.
