My mother dislikes the butterflies. It sounds silly, but she does have a good eye and I am suddenly thrown into doubt... what do you think about the butterflies? Should they be there? Do they steal the limelight from the girl? If so, how do I put something where the butterflies are to balance the composition of the piece, without detracting from the girl?
