Sometimes I just don't have a clue what I'm going to paint when I sit down at my work table. But since the table sits in front of a north window overlooking my gardens, I often sit there and imagine what it will like when Spring finally arrives. A few days ago I thought of all the colorful butterflies that come to visit, and that's what inspired this miniature ACEO painting done with pen & ink and watercolor.

I can almost hear them fluttering by Lanie!

This is sooooo pretty Elaine, (she says as she stares at the snow outside her window.) I can't wait for spring!

Lanie, it's so fresh and airy, I like it (as I like your logo too).
Hope to see some more like this!
