Tiger Swallowtail butterfly


pastels on 160gr Fabriano acid free black paper
9" x 12" (23 x 30,5 cm)

Out of comfort zone.  The first pastel after a long long time.  I feel excited finding myself in this medium again.  Butterflies symbolize regeneration and the constant change which is the real one law of the universe. Maybe I need some change in my quite stressful latest period of time and maybe I need her help to achieve it along with a new more revolutionary state of mind.  This specific butterfly is not justified by the photo since greens and yellows seem so better from close.  Have a great August time!
The photographer who inspired this one is K. Brooks.
