This afternoon when I went to water some of my plants, I found this butterfly. It was having a hard time figuring out just what to do with those big beautiful wings, I imagined it might be just freshly out of the cocoon. I couldn't resist gently scooping it up and trying to sit it on the smorgasbord that is my hollyhock patch. It flittered and flopped. I suppose waking up one day and finding you have wings is a bit of a shock. I hope it learns to fly with the best of them very soon.
I'm feeling a bit between metamophosis stages at the moment myself. Feeling like I need to try some new things. I'm thinking of dabbling in watercolor this summer, since I'll have Audrey home with me for the next few months and water color is so much more portable with less *stuff* needed to carry around than what I have now. I envision sitting out on the back porch with a painting board and a little box of watercolors while she plays. We'll see if it all works out!
And thanks so much for your congrats to be about the show in June! It's all very exciting! I'm looking forward to it, and hoping my art fits well with all the other great stuff going on there. I'll let you know more about it as I find out--- and of course if you're in Tulsa on June 21, get a ticket and come on down!
Well, back to working on some things, and perhaps getting my wings...
