If in doubt, add a butterfly

Here are a few paintings I just finished using this great butterfly book I found at the local library.  I figured out, while making these, that I am famous for painting myself in a corner.  Then my next step is to get very frustrated and not finish the painting. I decided to finish these even if I didn’t like them just so I could get out of the corner.  I was going for a simple composition when I realized that a minimalist touch is just not my style.
