"Spring Fling #5..."

...Spreading creative wings...paint first...then ink! :)

"St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time -
a day to begin transforming winter's dreams
into summer's magic."

paint first, then ink, what a neat idea. i love butterflies, but they don't appear much in london...

These are gorgeous. Your work reminds me of stained glass, the illustrations are so brilliantly translucent they glow.

Simply gorgeous. It is fun to think they are coming. It won't be long now. We saw our first butterfly sunday, a cabbage white.

Another lovely thing! The circular design reminds me of one of those compasses that used to be drawn at the top of very old maps...

I've seen that you often paint your designs differently. Do you draw first, then make copies? Then color/paint/etc? I love the black background one. The colors are so vibrant.

I love how you have a main feature in your art, but add in the extras! This is the most awesome butterfly I have ever seen!!!
