Dream of Butterflies

On a quiet sunny day,

 A little kitty came to play

On a tree with gnarly arms,

Honeysuckle vines 

And flowers...heed their charms.

Fragrant and inviting,

Too enchanting

For the butterflies

To resist.


This mural was born as a background to incorporate the client's preexisting artworks  to create an original diorama, featuring Rosie the cat, an attractive tree burl, and Gary Caldwell's stunning butterfly sculpture.

Painted with acrylics on a 55"/84" canvas, which was then attached to a wall, and highlighted with glow-in-the-dark paints for night-time enjoyment.
