This piece I did for the Country View Challenge "Bugs, Bees and Butterflies".
The girls are from a picture I found at an antique store-they were photographed together and I separated them. I think they look even sadder alone then they did when they were together! The image is faded so it was hard to pick the details of the girls up in the photo. I thought giving them butterfly wings might add some cheer. I did add a close up of the left side so the baby in the cocoon is visible. The poem excerpt is by Mary Oliver. It reads "The butterfly's loping flight carries it through the country of the leaves delicately, stopping here and there to fuzzle the damp throats of flowers."
