This piece is a macro photograph of butterfly weed from the field behind our home.  I was struck by how much the tiny clusters of flowers looked like tulips, and was happy to make this discovery upon my study of them.  It made me happy to be connected to this source of food and rest for monarchs and other butterflies as they progress on their journeys. The lushness of color and light made me feel joy and openness, and reminded me to stay close to that which feeds my own spirit.  The photography is printed on kozo paper, mounted to a cradled birch panel, layered in encaustic medium, hand-carved relief work done, and further enhancement of color through the use of powdered pigment.
