Watching my husband Nazim Artist take a white canvas and bring it to life with the latest edition to the Butterfly Nebula Cycle was a magical process!

The Butterfly Nebula by Nazim Artist http://www.NazimArtist.com
Note: This painting is presently exhibited in Nazim Artist’s solo exhibition entitled Power Animals, The Art of Wellness which features The Butterfly Nebula, at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood, California.
Most artists do a study or “cartoon’ before they place their image on a large canvas. The detail that I use for this blog is from the final Butterfly Nebula which is 6 ft x 8 ft. The artwork developed and became the final painting which has been exhibited since September 2011 at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Hollywood CA. What does this ‘study’ say to you. It will be interesting to see what feelings these first images convey to you and how you express them and then see if your feelings expand when I post the final painting a bit later. Join in and share what it evokes in you.
