Artist’s note: This painting is the first in a series inspired by the concept ‘Secrets of a Seaside Town’. I used vintage postcards to trigger ideas. A Collection of Butterflies and Moths is an imagined still life, based on the story created by the hand-drawn Edwardian postcard featured in the image, and the message on the back; “Is your collection complete yet? If you can’t keep them when caught, stick a pin through them.” The postcard that inspired the work is integrated into the painting.
