MONARCH (actual size)

While doing the "Artist's Way" workbook, one of the creative nudges was to follow a butterfly for one half hour.  My butterfly was a Monarch, and through following it across fields and dirt roads, neighbor's yards and a county highway, I grew quite attached to it.  Saddened to let it eventually fly on without me, I came home and painted this miniature.  Acrylic on 2"x3" canvas, I enjoyed every brush stroke.
