I like butterflies. As the autumn faded I was feeling a bit fed up because winter was upon us again. Another summer had come and gone. I tried to paint an impression of how I felt and include ghostly butterflies. I did it in such a way to try and make it look a little like it was painted on silk (using gold outlining),as butterflies' wings are silky.

I think this painting perhaps expresses optimistic melancholy?
