More Butterflies

I’ve been exploring the idea of self-identity the past few days as I prepare for my students first unit of study for the school year.  I’ve also been looking through my butterfly books while working on finishing my other butterfly series and I see one beautiful butterfly after another.  I was inspired to paint these small butterflies because the world is filled with such beauty, including the souls of each of my students.  I hope that as we start the new school year each of my student’s self-identity can blossom through the self-exploration of dancing.

These butterflies are Artist Trading Card Size, done in Watercolor, using Golden’s Absorbent Ground on small Ampersand boards.  Perhaps there will be more forth-coming!
