"Papillon Redux"

"A Painting A Day" to Benefit The Lake County Haven

7" x 5" Watercolor on Paper
Sale of this painting will help to support homeless women and their children
assisted in their struggle to achieve permanent, indepentent living by The Lake County Haven.

Many of you will recognize this painting as the companion to "Papillon" offered on September 4.
When planning a piece, I will often work in a series. Painting two or more of a subject in the same size and/or palette a wonderful exercise for keeping my drawing, color mixing, and paint application consistent.

Collectors enjoy the series I create because it allows them to create groupings of artwork on their walls and carry a color or theme throughout a room or home. A pair of two paintings, similiar in framing and subject are a quick and easy decorating solution. "Duets" are very versatile and will easily decorate a variety of wall spaces: side by side over a dining room buffet, stacked one above the other on a narrow wall, above a powder room commode or even on different walls in the same room.

Collecting groupings of art can immediately add interest to any room. Adding to a grouping or reconfiguring the arrangement of pieces on the wall or breaking up a grouping can be a quick way to give a room a new look.
