Fall is normally my favorite season but this year the idea of it getting cold makes me sad, mainly because of all the butterflies disappearing and the flowers dying. So the other day when I was in my studio I began thinking about how beautiful it would be if you could see butterflies and flowers in the snow. Picture this, the morning right after a large snow storm when the whole world is asleep under a shimmering white blanket of snow, when the sky is that deep brilliant blue and the air is completely still. Imagine how amazing it would be to see a vibrant orange Monarch or a bright yellow Swallowtail flutter and glide about and then land on a snow covered branch. I think that would be absolutely breathtaking.
If I could build a snowman on that winter's day this is what she would look like.
