With the butterfly installation at the Gem Gallery, the environment in the gallery felt like a beautiful, lively corridor to Spring and reminded ones spirit of the excitement of the coming of the new year. Butterflies mark the beginning of change in life in a dramatic way. This installation marked that change for C. Lou as the artist embarks on expression as a career and breaks free from the cubicle cocoon in which C. Lou had long resided. The winter is over for this butterfly.
The paintings below are currently available unless otherwise noted. Each painting is oil on canvas on 1 1/2" stretchers and dimensions of 5"x5". The paintings are numbered according to their location in the installation. The numbering was from right to left around the room and the lettering was used a, b, c, etc from top to bottom of the collumn it was located. If there is a number but no letter, then this was the only painting in that column. If there is no number and no letter, the butterfly was exhibited at the gallery but used elsewhere for effect - some even hung from the ceiling!
