Butterfly Wishes, abstract palette knife painting

"Butterfly Wishes"
© Fawn McNeill 2009

About This Painting:
This is the first of a series of 4 palette knife butterflies I did a few years ago.

I wanted to make it look like it was moving quickly, so I used a painting knife for a more abstract effect. 

The symbolism is in the colors: green is for growth and wealth, orange is for warmth and open arms, and yellow is for joy.

This little painting is loaded with thick paint and bold colors. 


Media: acrylic on hardboard
Size: 5 in X 7 in (12.7 cm X 17.8 cm)
