MARVELOUS MIGRANTS AND CREATING A PAINTING

First I made a drawing then slowly progressed. I liked it but kept adding more monarchs. It is about silly limits on migrations. The planet has seasons. Following the seasons honors the Mother Earth.

BUTTERFLIES AND RIBBONS

The images that keep jumping into my compositions are ribbons and monarch butterflies. I resolve to try some other varieties of bugs but the monarch butterfly's recent promotion to ENDANGERED has inspired me.

RIBBON OF LIFE, THE SHOW

Lydia Street Gallery made the cards for this exhibit. It is quite designed and formatted. When I make cards they are straightforward or otherwise, boring. I don't play with the layers and such. NEVERTHELESS, the show is coming up! Yea!!! A party on Friday night, 7 - 10 PM!! Ten at Night!! That's a stretch for me.
