I am a Butterfly

I am a butterfly, my heart on my wings

I follow my heart, hear the wind as it sings.

Be my friend, know my love and you will find

no better kindness , in sight or mind.

I will cling to your sleeve take me where you will.

Yet,  be gentile please as my thoughts I spill.

You can learn from my travels, ere the wind doth blow.

If you will but listen my knowledge you’ll know.

I am a butterfly, tell me what you will know.

Or I’ll follow the wind, and you can watch as I go.

I am not a poet but I wanna learn. I love the artists’ life, and taking part in this blogging experience has opened new worlds. Please be kind.  🙂  I am open to suggestion

This painting is a flip cup pour on an album with blown flowers. After it dried I applied skins that were cut in the shapes of butterfly wings, then added the body. I hope to apply clock works. and she will be available for purchase if anyone has interest.

Hope you enjoy!  Comments are encouraged.

You Otter see this Cutie

When I first started acrylic pouring someone showed me how to do the “tree ring” pour. I had to try one for myself and this was my results. It was kinda plain for my liking, but I just didn’t know what to put  on it.   I was thinking about painting a fish or a turtle but I felt like they had been over done.  So I kept looking for animals in the water and this sweet little otter cried out to be painted.

I have always loved painting animals but was kinda fearful of trying to paint on top of my pour. Thankfully I have been following a group of amazing artists  on Facebook, and with much encouragement I felt more confident in my approach.  This little guy just wanted to be painted.  Now I cant wait to embellish some more. And believe me there are more. Acrylic pouring is sort of addictive, you can’t get enough.

One hint I was thankful to learn is, if you want to paint on top of your acrylics you can apply a protective coating which will keep the under painting from washing away when you paint your embellishment.

Hope you enjoy this little guy. I sure enjoyed painting him and cant wait to try more.
