This is my first painting in nearly a year due to illness and two operations. I painted this for my friend's daughter, Ellen for her 21st birthday. She likes butterflies and fairies etc so I painted her as one and she loves it. Oil on 18x24 inch stretched canvas.
I never did art in school after the age of 10. I took up painting 2 years ago just to see if I could do anything worth making it into a hobby. I have never been to any art class so I am still really just learning things as I go along through trial and error.
