When I was working on this butterfly, I just thought it would be a fun painting to share with all of you. The question mark is hidden on the underside of the hind wing, but you can identify this butterfly from the lovely lavender line along the hind wings, and the angularity of the outside edges of the wings.
However this morning my heart is heavy with questions and sorrow. ANOTHER white cop has shot ANOTHER black man in Kenosha WI and there was rioting last night. I have paintings in a sweet little gallery there. It is a co-op. We love out little gallery, and our artist community. It tears my heart to think of it with boarded up windows, and to think of the deep new would in that town that is trying so hard to thrive.
