Butterfly Party

By Dolci @dolcimirabella
Butterfly PartyI decided to dabble in a little watercolor this weekend. It ws fun to go back to something light and delicate. I was able to get nice results even though they are not as vibrant as the acryllics. I didn't want to overdo the details in this painting. I have a couple more ideas to try using butterflies.
On another note, still about butterflies, Trudi Sissons at Two Dresses Studio is collecting artful butterflies for the Holocaust Museum in Houston Texas. I'm placing a button on my sidebar with a link to her page, if you're interested in participating. 
Briefly, the Holocaust Museum is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies to remember the 1,500,000 children who perished as a result of the Holocaust. Consider participating in this beautiful memorial that will be displayed in the Spring, 2013.   The Poem, I Never Saw Another Butterfly, written by Pavel Friedman on June 4, 1942 is the inspiration for this project. You can find the poem on Trudi's blog. The deadline for entries is December 31, 2011.
