I haven't posted pictures of my butterflies in a while, so here you go. They are painted on antique ivory piano keys. I use oils and it takes up to 7 thin layers of paint to complete each one. Very tiny and tedious. Every time I paint them I say these are the last ones, then I forget and start up again. I love music and nature and it makes me happy to combine the two in this way. I just delivered several to River Oaks Gallery in Abilene so there is a pretty good selection at this time. Better hurry - these could be the last.......but I doubt it :)

winter bird

Just a pretty winter scene for you today. We've had three beautiful snows this year
and I've spent quite a bit of time at the window with my camera. The view changes every second and I don't want to miss a thing.
