Monday Morning Artwork

I've been working diligently on my submission to "The Butterfly Project" and since I'm finished it & it fits the theme for both Blue Monday and Inspire Me Monday, I thought I'd participate. I also thought showing the progression of the painting might be exciting too. I happen to have taken pictures of it a few times as I progressed, so this plan works out. The plan wouldn't come together so well if I didn't have those pics, huh. I guess I'd just have to pantomime. ;o) 
So, here we go... (click to enlarge)

...and here's the finished painting!

Title: "The Innocence"

I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I'm also thrilled to be able to send a piece I'm proud of off to such a wonderful cause. I can't believe I get the honor of being a part of the display of 1.5 million butterflies, one for each child who perished in the Holocaust.

Also, please check out my new endeavor. In March (on one of the Saturdays) I will be launching a blog hop geared toward those of us who create art. If you consider yourself an artist at heart, please sign up your blog so I have some idea how many people are interested. Don't worry, I won't be tracking you down and dragging you back to participate if you decide later not to! Click here to read more about my "Artist's Play Room" and the start of the upcoming blog hop.

We'll talk soon, K? Oh, and if anyone out there has a secret stash of hazelnut coffee I'd be willing to do almost anything for a jar! (My town seems to be out of it city wide, huh... I'm having withdrawal symptoms. Thank God there's cake tomorrow. Happy Birthday MOM!! I Love You Muchly. :o)

  1. Dear Jenn

    Your butterfly painting is beautiful & I am so inspired by this project! I have a friend who lives in the city where the exhibit is occurring - what I wouldn't give to be able to see all of the butterflies when it opens! Thank you for sharing this at Inspire Me Monday - I especially loved seeing the sketches at the various stages of the project!


  2. Thanks for sharing your touch of blue.

    Happy Blue Monday, Jenn.

  7. Jennifer, what a beautiful project AND painting!! i had never heard of the butterfly project. Such a touching tribute. I see in your profile that you are an artist "looking for her medium"... well, dare i say you have FOUND IT with watercolour? That is one beautiful butterfly painting. xoxo
    ps: hope you find your hazelnut coffee... :-)

  8. Beautiful! I love the detail you've put into this, just gorgeous work!

  9. Beautiful capture!

    Visiting late from Blue Monday, my entry is HERE, have a great week!

  10. what a beautiful art work, loved it :-) Visiting from Blue Monday, hope that you can return the visit too.

  11. Jenn,
    Love your artwork (I love book tags and altered art journals) and I am really loving what you have done to the IA blog. I really want to clean up and improve my blog. It is just so frustrating to me because it takes me so long to figure out what the heck I am doing and then I spend hours fixing what I thought I knew what I was doing..UGH. I would love to have the background gone and have fresh new look. I love your side bar "visit me" places and I love the block of IA members as well as your other blocks of challenges and hops. Email me when you have some time, I have some questions you can help me with I am sure.
    I have always wanted to try water color as well. Maybe you will inspire me to try my hand at it sometime.

    Have a great week!
