T Stands for Tuesday and Release of Nine Monarch Butterflies

Having technical issues this morning so this will be a very short post . We had storms yesterday and our internet has been sketchy since. :( 
Last week was a grand week for butterflies with a total of 17 being released. This is the only video I can access this morning but it's the biggest release. 
Here's my drink for the day... coffee of course with one of my art projects for the week.

This is the other piece I was working on, which is almost finished.
Since it has taken forever for this much to get done I will sign off and hope this works. 
We'll try one random thought....

Paint Party Friday

It's Friday and time to share a bit of art with all of you folks. It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted... I haven't been doing art. πŸ˜’
Just too busy with the yard and garden and those crazy caterpillars. 
After 24 failures with unhealthy caterpillars we finally have 4 apparently healthy butterflies. Yesterday 2 females emerged and today we have 2 more. Before the day is out today we should have 5 more butterflies. Exciting times for me anyways ♥

Since the past week was just a waiting game and no messes to clean up several times a day I have had time for art. 
Working on two pieces  at the same time. 
  I started with a prepared background that I had made by smearing leftover paints on a sheet of watercolor paper.
Then a butterfly sketched on a sheet of paper for the second one. This was used on a canvas for a mixed media piece. 
Then started adding more details to both...

More details .... 

... and this is where I am at now 😊
The butterfly is nearly done and the other has a lot more work to be done. 
I should  have more time this coming week to finish them and start something else.
