Mixed Media Painting Chasing Your Dreams

I was inspired last summer watching my daughter gleefully chasing the butterflies across our back yard.  Little four year old arms flailing and high pitched squeals following.  Forever wondering how heart broken she would be if she ever caught the butterfly and hurt it.  Luckily they were always too fast.  Much like our dreams some things are better left to the chase rather than the capture.  Made with ripped paper gesso canvas, watercolor paint, colored pencils and India ink.
