This is my newest piece of artwork. I did it with oil paints on canvas. Believe it or not, I used every color of the rainbow in this picture. I call it "Metamorphosis" because it is a symbol of my life this past year. This painting represents my growth as a person- emotionally, spiritually, and in other ways, too. I actually modeled this painting after a photo I took- here is the original photo:

I tried to play around with color this time. The piece evolved throughout the different stages and at one point it was very vibrant- the picture shows it slightly different than the actual finished piece because the camera is weird and it looks better in real life. :P

Comments? Critiques? Thoughts? I'm open to anything!

It's beautiful! I don't know a whole lot about painting so I can't really give any critiques but I don't think I could find any anyways. You captured the original picture wonderfully.

composition colours and technique are simply wonderful. The only thin for me is that the buterfly stands out too much a little I mean I know it does in the photo but in the painting i don't think you were trying to show the clash between the butterfly and the rest of the painting were you? if not the butterfly should feel more in harmony->soften the black edges with dabs of colours and try to create more variety of shdes within the wings of the butterfly from darkest to lightest. this is all technical but emotinally your painting is simply perfect keep up the good work

Love it! I like how the butterfly really stands out, it seems to pop off the screen. The backround is also beautiful though, and the colors blend really nicely together. I also give you credit for working with oils, I tried it once before and found that I had no patience for it lol. Great work!
