The composition of Golden Girls bows to the ubiquitous Butterfly Bush in my garden, whose seeds fly from site to site on the silken wings inherited from its milkweed relatives. Like its name, the bush is an irresistible attraction to butterflies.
The highly exaggerated pinwheel flowers, scattered throughout the painting, erupt from the tiny, glowing red balls that linger around the willowy stalk. The emerald striped background sets the stage for the pinwheels to rush forward at varying velocities--marked by the degree of detail in eachpincushion. The realistic details and impressionistic blurs move the eye around dramatic visual essay.
