Nature Walk

I was walking my dog this early Monday morning, we came across a beautiful butterfly or is this a moth? I don't know. Well I am not an insect expert, I assume it is a butterfly. I feel blessed to be greeted by this delicate creature.
He gently opened his wings, just so I can take a picture.
Then later, I was walking my dog, and this fellow was still there. All I could imagine, are little feet, big feet, bike wheels and Lord knows what else stomping on him.  "Don't worry my fellow nature friend, I will help you." I felt so sorry for him, is he sick, injured?  So I did what a country girl does, I picked him up and walked him to my courtyard garden.  He is right now there, he is fluttering his wings.  Maybe saying, thank you for taking me to a garden!
Back to art.
 I am drawing Trees. It is truly time for nature in my life.
It has been awhile since I had a graphite pencil in my hand. There's something about drawing that calms me. I am also using color pencils for added texture and depth. (I miss art school).
Here are the pics...
This drawing is from my imagination, I am free drawing it, so as my mind thinks of what to put in this drawing, it will appear.
More to come with this drawing...


  1. Such a beautiful butterfly and so nice to put it back in a garden where it belongs!

    1. The butterfly flew away. After I acknowledged it was a wink from my mom. My family said my mom came to visit. I received a catalog in my mail with butterflies on it today. I have not drawn, my finger is swollen from RA. hurts too much.
