The Butterfly Plant

Have you ever seen a butterfly plant? Oh, it is very unusual and difficult to find. They bloom only for a short time where a pond is shallow and the small fish swim gently near the warm surface. Almost silently. Near dawn.

  1. Happy you, you have got it !

  2. I love butterflys. Your guache's are amazing. So is your beautiful blog the way it unfolds and its story. Thank you for sharing. Greetings and best wishes from Australia.

  3. Thanks so much for your nice comments! I had thought at one time to be just a butterfly artist because I love them so much but I keep getting distracted by birds! Usually I am working on my printimaking but I have found a love for the colors and texture of gouache paint. Painting can be a fun break from all the technicalities of printmaking, especially etching.
    Good wishes to you in Australia and thanks for visiting!
