A Boy Once More
from The Prince of Butterflies

Here the butterflies have turned John back into a boy and are fluttering around him.


This one was frustrating, not so much because I don't feel it works, but because it is the furthest from my initial mental image.  I "saw" this one immediately, which is normally a great sign.  For some reason though, in execution, it drifted farther and farther from what I had imagined.  Looking at it now, I think it's okay, but it isn't the painting I had in my head.
