My newest painting, a butterfly ACEO with dynamic surround. A subtle but stunning colour combination of umber, light yellow and turquoise with pale violet dots. This painting has fascinating interference gold highlights that catch the light unexpectedly but is difficult to photograph accurately. The pale yellow outer edge of the wings has subtle flashes which make it look as if it is moving. I have tried a scan and several photos, but just can´t seem to get it. Interference paint is much more subtle than the bronze seen below on GRATITUDE, but both are beautiful.

Feedback is so important that I´m posting an unsold painting on this blog and in the Daily Paintworks `CRITIQUE ME` Challenge each day this month. Anyone can leave feedback by going to the challenge and clicking on the painting you would like to comment on. Don´t be shy, whether you´re a fellow Artist or an Art Lover, we would love to hear what you have to say. 

GRATITUDE is the latest candidate for feedback. This is a very pretty painting with bronze highlights and lovely colours. It would make a wonderful gift, or at least that´s my opinion. 

Sometimes a painting doesn´t sell because of lack of exposure or bad timing, but I´m open to hearing if there is anything else which needs attention. I´m tough, so please help me grow as an Artist by leaving a comment either below or at the DPW Challenge here.
