I’m late in sharing pics from this past weekend due to a little hiccup with our internet connection - thank goodness is all fixed Yay !!!
But first I just have to show you my new favorite background color…
I realize Black is not an uncommon color but when it comes to canvas, most of what’s available is white. The black canvas I have come across is always faded it never looks rich and shiny. But when I painted this white canvas black, it turned out so nice, it is rich and looks dense on the canvas - love it! Next week I’ll show you how it looks with the flowers I’ve started painting.
We went to a new attraction in town called Butterfly Wonderland which opened within the last year.
This place was absolutely phenomenal! They run a 3D short educational video on the Monarch Butterfly (amazing creatures)
Butterflies from all over the world are in various sizes and colors…
I have never seen an Black and White Butterfly – have you?
The area they’re housed in is like a huge greenhouse
in a controlled warm and humid environment where they fly freely and if you’re lucky one may land on you.
Obviously they’re going to land where they want to but I was trying to walk slowly I was terrified I would accidently step on one.
The next time I go I plan on taking my “real” camera with zoom lens to take more pics I didn’t get pics of all the different species that were there. Also it’s my understanding they rotate the species according to the seasons. whaow
Now I have to decide which one I’m going to print and frame.
Hope you’re having a great week.
