This is another of Sherry Nelson's designs that I painted. Two of my favorite things are sunflowers and Butterflies.
We raised 7 Monarch butterflies this year from egg to adult. It was soooo amazing to see the transformation take place. Below is a picture of the caterpillar and the chrysalis that the butterfly just came out of. They hang to dry for a couple of hours before they are ready to be let go.
Some of the Monarchs hung around long enough to get their pictures taken. I hope they all have a safe journey to Mexico
This design is from one of my favorite artists, Sherry Nelson. I love all her bird and flower designs. I decided to try something different and painted it on a canvas which was covered in Tim Holtz Melange tissue wrap. I then painted over it leaving part of the tissue showing thru. What do you think? I might add a little more paint around the edges of the canvas to kind of frame the picture. The canvas is a bit large for the size that I did the painting but that is what I had on hand at the time I started it. Overall I am happy with how it turned out. You can see the bits of bumps from the tissue paper but I think that adds to the rustic feel. It has been so long since I did any painting other then some crafty type of stuff. I have missed it. I have been so busy with my Paper Creations orders that I put my painting way on a back burner. I need to take the time every week to paint. What better way to spend a cold winter day!
