I just kept thinking about butterflies, so butterflies it is!
Butterflies are a reoccurring theme in my work since...well, since forever. I was thinking, 'hey, I should write up an intro- you know, give some background on why I keep using butterflies in my work.'
Turns out- I already did! #win
...just a sample of some work I have created that includes butterfly imagery. With the exception of the piece in the top left corner, all of these works have been created since 2012...and most are parts of monthly themes that have 27-30 other pieces in 'em. You can tell that some of these are from the same month/theme...but still...that's a whole lotta butterflies, ya'll!
I took a bit of time back in 2016 to give some proper background and I feel that it still fits- so for once in my life I am going to make it easier on myself and say, hey- please visit that link (above) for more background info!
In the meantime, here is my most recent series dedicated to butterflies- my #ButterflyBellaJLG series from July 2016. I really loved how this series turned out so I am so excited about revisiting it...and you know, I am just excited to get back to my big eyed ladies- it's been a minute!
What will be new for this round? I'm not sure. I can already see from the first two gals that I am making an effort to give some kind of background, even if it's just some light, textured watercolor. I thought about maybe doing some mixed media elements later in the series...gonna leave it open-ended and see what takes flight!
Here are my first two Bellas;
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
