TATTERED BUTTERFLY DRAWING IN INKS
This rather tattered butterfly, distorted by life and heavy winds, was difficult to render. I am always saddened by the shortness of life for some of the most beautiful of God's creatures. I used two different types of ink on this drawing, a fine tip Sharpee to render the fur, and ink brushes to get some strong, dark shades. Nature is not always kind to it's population, and I am thinking that destruction of the more fragile in it's world is inevitable. I am going to call this drawing "Ethan's Butterfly" in honor of my grandson, who was in this world much too short of a time, and who was one of God's most beautiful of creatures.
