To know that change has occurred for myself and all of us, and adjustments made, change of perspective, with what is a new normal, per say? I continue to make my Art, to express what I find joy in, what moves me, and letting nature still be inspiring led me to create a few pieces. Blue Butterfly Book is one piece.

Red Book, Yellow Bird Travels
Red Book, Yellow Bird Travels, is along the same concept as Blue Butterfly Book, Gold Bird Book. I used page edges, cut & shaped, to reflect parts of the bird image, tail, wing, head side. Once again birds are a motif for me as I explore various ways to represent them in some of my art making.
Gold Bird Book
Gold Bird Book, is a piece that follows a few others similar to Blue Butterfly Book. It reflects that nature Is inspiring; birds are a motif for me, and represent much, they sing, they can fly solo or with others, they can have colorful feathers or minimal color, but are very amazing to watch.
3 Butterfly Book
This piece was created from a larger complete drawing of butterflies cut into size for 3 books. Butterflies are an inspiration – their fluttering, delicate beauty, and diversity. They fly in, out, up, down, across, and all around. I can see & view them outside, when I am inside, or when I am right there as they flutter in my space when I am walking, standing, gardening.
