This painting is currently living at The Ball Joint in Loveland. Go see it in person and have a snack while you're there!
The other night I laid down to sleep and Paul McCartney’s song, Distractions, popped into my head. It has a verse about butterflies.
Instantly I thought about painting a cat looking at a butterfly on its nose.
But I don’t paint that sort of thing so, I thought, how do I space it up?
I had to get up and sketch this it to make sure it survived until morning.
