Butterflies in Space!

Space Butterflies 3 for cysarts

Space Butterflies 3 (2005)

Not a major scientific discovery, but a mere flight of fancy (pardon the pun).

In the spring of 2005 we lost a dear sister in our church so I was looking for a distraction, a catharsis if you like. When she was seriously ill, her favourite bible verse was

“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.”  1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV).

That summer I remembered the butterflies whose photos I had taken at Stratford Upon Avon the previous year. I superimposed their patterns on the rolling spheres of space and got the above result. The full collection (of three paintings) may be viewed in “Galleries” → “Space Butterflies”.

Sorry I have not been regular in writing lately. My new job in the office of a small university has kept me busy. I hope to begin releasing samples of this year’s project “Sea creatures” soon.
