Butterflies #3

I wrote up a small note on the piece on the back of the painting. The piece is about teamwork and is part of a series that I am exploring on the theme of respect, especially among peers, even among “outsiders” or butterflies. Within many northwest coast native cultures, there are crests that are usually animals, that represent families or bloodlines. The butterfly crest is reserved for people who are not part of a nation by blood.

I think that the best way to describe it is how respect is required for harmony, and teamwork if need be. Each butterfly in the design is defined by a set of similar butterflies, with different colors. Each member of a functional team may have a different personality (color) but where they meet they are similar.

It’s all in the interfacing, ie boundaries, or communication if you will.
