Monarchs in Mexico

Unfortunately, the only way I could show the depth of color and texture was to use a flash. Without it, the painting looked washed out. Monarch butterflies "vacation" in Mexico, buy the hundreds of thousands. There are many trips to see them in a town not far from San Miguel. I have not yet made that trip, but the photos are amazing and it is on my list of "to do" things.


  1. Beautiful picture. It is like a fairy tale seeing all those monarchs. At first I thought it was one of your wax pieces. I can easily see you using them (or an artificial version of them) in your work.

  2. This painting is completely painted in encautic. No collage or photos.


I love hearing from you. Please leave your comments and suggestions on what you would like to see on this blog.
