The Yellow Butterfly

The Yellow Butterfly, 2021, Oil on board, 10" x 8", $800. For Sale.
By Patricia Miller Uchello

Very recently, I copied a small area of a Vanitas painting by the Dutch Master, Jan de Heem. Vanitas paintings include insects, decay of leaves and flowers, etc., to show the inevitable passage of time and decline of anything and everything in nature. 

Beauty is fleeting.

I painted this still life painting this Fall, and spent far more time than usual finessing the details. This oil painting was chosen for a juried show at The Art League, shortly after completion. Sometimes, it pays to slow down, park my impatience and work my eyes long and hard.

For sale. Inquire for the price on comments section.
