|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.
