About this painting
A painting about a sexless relationship.

A couple embrace, but they are made of stone. The red heart shows love, but the solitary seed is cast to the wind. An arm is part arm, part languid caterpillar, the green like decay perhaps? Perhaps more like lustless melancholy, a bluish green, the colour of sadness in contrast to the passion of scarlet red. The butterfly though looks beautiful and bright. In the grey distance is a second butterfly, a symbol of hope.
