“Butterfly nebula”

24”x48” resin art on birch wood panel- inks, pigments, luxe powders


I am a memorial artist specializing in space and ocean paintings with ashes. Part of my work is connecting ashes to ashes… where we came from and where we will all eventually end up.  Energy can’t be created or destroyed, energy simply moves through space and time shifting, changing… Even though this painting does NOT contain ashes I wanted to express the change that a butterfly goes through in “space like” painting. I wanted to create a nebula piece of art that displayed the brightness and ever changing color shift of both a butterfly and a nebula in space.
