Note: This artwork is now available as a card at my Etsy Shop: [link]

This particular artwork has taken over a year to complete. The unfinished version, which I posted months ago, is now in Scraps:

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this to be done. :) Please click on the larger version; the glory is in the details!

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?

Well, I think the butterflies are good--otherwise the sky would look interesting but empty. But the butterflies themselves might be a bit distracting--the color, maybe, since they're really the only blue things in the picture. Also they look less like butterflies in flight, and more like butterflies when they're resting on a flower (they look more like butterfly stickers at the moment...)

But besides that, beautiful picture! I love what you did with the girl's dress, especially. :)

Haha, I totally see what you mean. I think the "sticker effect" is probably what bothered my mother when she saw it. It's like there's the painting, and then wabam! The Butterflies!

Thanks though. :) I do love the dress too. I don't even remember how I pulled that off, lol.

maybe you could make the butterflies more reddish like her dress to balance the large amount of red in the piece and you could move them father more in the left top corner. otherwise, though, this is amazing.

Yeah, there's an idea! Looking at it again, I agree with you about the placement, though as for the red, they may not stand out against the sky enough...
