Dad revisited the theme of butterflies throughout his career.  I asked him why, and he said they were interested him because they were a think of great beauty that lasted only a short while.  That resonated with him as he thought about the losses in his life and the people he knew who died too young.

At the end of his life, he was painting butterflies almost exclusively.
