Monarch is queen

Female Monarch butterfly on wall hang on the wall.  Not functional...just a reminder of our beautiful friends that are no longer as prevalent because their favorite plants, milkweed, have been almost destroyed by the farmers spraying Monsanto weed killers on fields.


  1. It's very beautiful.
    Have you read "Flight Behavior" by Barbra Kingsolver?

  2. Yes, I want to read it again. Our gallery will be having lots of Monarchs on display in Sept for a special show. Perhaps I'll have more by then.

    1. Thanks Linda...I'm trying painting on the leather hard clay today.


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
