Butterfly and Dragonfly Paintings
Memories are funny things sometimes, that seem to pop up out of nowhere. This morning while folding laundry, I thought about when my children were in grade school. I tried to have a snack ready for them each day after school, so one day I made chocolate chip cookies that were coming out of the oven as they got off the bus.
It was a beautiful sunny day when the four of them got to the top of the driveway, and the cookies were still very warm and melty. Each of them got a cookie. My son was 5 years old at the time, and still quite impressed by not to mention in love with cookies. While he was looking at the cookie, getting ready for the first bite, the look of complete adoration turned abruptly though to one of reviled disgust.
I didn’t understand until I saw the butterfly perched on the cookie. I was a very bad mother to laugh so hard. But, there were more cookies to replace it with. I found it odd that something as beautiful as a butterfly would be seen as something repulsive when viewed so up close and personal.

Butterfly and Dragonfly Paintings are wonderfully fun to do for me. They are always dressed so magnificently, and I only wish that I was! Many times I work on my paintings with photographs nearby to use as reference, so I have gone out to do my own photo sessions at times. One summer day, there was a Swallow Tail butterfly in the flower bed. That was the first and last time I ever got attacked by a butterfly! I must have gotten too close, and it began beating it’s wings on my face. I let out a few screeches before I began laughing hysterically by the time I got up the driveway.
