Saskia Lumosi and her orange-eyed aunts

Butterfly Stew

Saskia invites her alleged aunts to a dinner party. A very special dinner. The three women are delighted: they think that the surly, insect-loving girl has finally given in to their charisma. But it is too late when they realize that the child has used the syrup canned butterflies to fix the exquisite stew they wolfed down without knowing. Their members stiffen and the air freezes inside their throats just as Saskia foresaw: allergic to butterflies. Watercolor and graphite on canvas.
