Is There A Theme Going On Here?

No, there isn't, it's a total coincidence, I promise. I am NOT obsessed with butterflies. It just so happens that the next few projects will have those lovely etherial creatures in prominence. I'm working on one new project that is larger than I usually work. So, I decided I'd kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. I decided to do a mock up of the idea I've been mulling over for days and since I wanted to participate in a new art bloghop I discovered, I thought I'd do my trial run as a postcard. It was kismet when I discovered that I had the paper already precut! I then discovered that the new theme was dragons so I did this zentangle instead.

...So, back to my two projects. Here's a picture of the mock up for the piece I'm doing that will, in it's final size, be 17x11 inches.

Title: "Butterfly Rising"

The finished project will be turquoise, majenta, green and two shades of blue (for the sky). I can't wait to see the final product. After the art is sent to where it's going I'll post it here for all of you to see. :o) My other project is also, coincidentally, a butterfly. I've decided to do another butterfly specifically for The Butterfly Project (click the link to go to my post that explains the Project fully). I just wanted to put some serious effort into it and think of the meaning as I created it. Also, the piece can be up to 8"x10" and the bookmark I was going to send is so small comparatively. I'll probably still do a butterfly on a flower, and it actually may be a corn flower again, I guess I want this piece to be made especially for the exhibit at the Holocaust Museum in Huston, not just a bookmark I made for someone to purchase. Does that make sense? I hope so.

Well, it's like 3 in the freaking morning here and I gotta go to bed. For serious. It's so weird to have this kind of energy, all because of the creation process. Strange.
Nighty Night my bloggy friends,

(No coffee offered tonight, it'll keep me up and YOU should already be in bed! Shoo!)
Hehehehe.
Best,

  13. Very nice, my friend! Love the dragon zen ... and of course, the butterflies ... mmmmm! Did you see my latest post on butterflies, and the odd coincidence of the tie between my first boss and the Florida Holocaust Museum? The world is so small.

    Much love,
