I found this butterfly at the end of the summer on the ground in a parking lot. At first I thought it was still living, but as I approached it there was no movement, so now it sits with the other "found treasures" in our house.
I took a little watercolor "boot-camp" a couple of Saturdays ago put on by Sondra Holtzman and loved it! Watercolor, for me. has mainly been the medium I use for making quick sketches out of doors or roughs for more finished oil paintings, rarely as an end in themselves. I've always been a bit intimidated by them! Painting something like this, though, to me is like a meditation. I love the simplicity of the subject, the playing with muted tones and using natural light.
