Butterflies in the Stomach

This softground Series began during a series of Workshops with Eugenio Cecioni.


This is Japan, my first soft ground, dedicated to the Fukushima disaster.

the Three Butterflies is made with the use of Ginkgo Biloba leaves.

I don’t always watercolour this one..

I customized this one with a calligraphy caption I wrote:

The Butterflies are aware of that feeling deep inside of you, that warns you you’re upset.

They don’t exist, but they still help you.
