The Deep was my first piece of art done created with this new technique of reacting paints and chemicals with steel.  I was working on this piece but not being happy with the results, when a beautiful blue butterfly kept flitting around the artwork.  While the butterfly was gorgeous, I am deathly afraid of butterflies!  This harkens back to a childhood experience when one got stuck in my hair and my friends stood by shrieking in horror, but were of no assistance in helping to remove it.  Yet, I have come to know that God sends me butterflies.  This particular day, the butterfly would not leave my artwork alone, as I worked on it outside.  I took this as God’s sign to give up. After putting all of my supplies back into the garage, I wanted to look at the art again to determine if there was a way to salvage the painting.  On my way to the painting, I traveled the narrow path between the cars parked outside the garage and the garage doors, over to the place where the art was located, but the butterfly made a beeline right for me sending me running like crazy for cover.  “Apparently, I’m not even allowed to look at it”, I thought. 


The next day when I returned, the reactions had taken place overnight, and the results were beautiful! No further work needed to be done.  This reactive painting on steel measures 18” x 8”, and is textured.   After several years of hanging in my home, I am finally ready to part with it and hope that it brings blessings to its next owner.
