Catch Up

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…

Prints on Canvas, Fine Art Photogrpahy, Painted with Acrylic Paints

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.
