Monarch Butterfly & Milkweed
|© Ashley Halsey 2013|
I just recently finished this pencil and watercolor piece for the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center's 2014 calendar. Although it will be printed in black and white, I couldn't resist adding the vibrant orange of the Monarch Butterfly. I have always been fascinated by the epic Monarch migration.
The theme for this year's calendar was based around a farm property that the nature center is acquiring called Coogan Farm. It's exciting to see such a beautiful piece of historic property being preserved for the community to enjoy as well as a becoming a place for nature to thrive.
If you are interested, this piece is available for purchase as a print from my Etsy Shop as well.
