I am excited that I am moving forward with my paintings on Plexiglas. I am quickly learning new approaches and techniques. I have landed on this series of "Butterfly" paintings which still has remnants of my "Connect the Dots" theme. In addition I have added the related underlying symbolism of the archtype of the "Tic Tac Toe" structure of dots and x's inside a grid as expressed in the I Ching, crossword puzzles, the game of hopscotch and the Braille Alphabet.

I collected butterflies and moths for many years when I lived in rural Massachusetts. I still have vivid memories of spending time in sunny fields of flowers and grasses waiting for hours in hopes that I would spot a monarch butterfly. The images I have incorporated into these paintings are copyrighted but used with permission from Ronald Hart, a butterfly collector in Australia. His web site address is: http://www.insectdesigns.com/ Thank you Ron!

The following paintings are about 30" x 30", acrylic paint and rice paper collage on plastic sheet. Enjoy!
