Butterfly Garden 4" X 4"

I belong to a marvelous group of artists who collaborate each year to work on a project.   One year it was a round robin journal book, the next skinnies and this year it is 4" X 4"s.   We each choose a theme and take turns creating a piece for each person month by month.    "Butterfly Garden" was the subject of this creation.   I wanted to capture that serene feeling that comes from losing oneself in a garden when all of the sense are tuned into the rhythms of nature....the flap of a wing, the rustle of the leaves in the trees, a butterfly or bee that alights on a flower, a critter that just happens to appear not knowing that you are near.   When we are still, wonderful things can happen.
