This is a calendar page I’m working on for one of the art challenges at Artists Nook in Fort Collins. It’s for a calendar swap. Several artists picked a month to create artwork . We have to create 13 pieces or 1 piece and 12 copies on good strong paper. The finished pieces will be collected, collated, bound and returned to us as finished art calendars. The finished wall calendar will be 8″ x 8″, artwork on top and calendar dates on bottom. The “Butterfly Queen” (or a version of it) will be for the month of May. I chose May since it’s my birth month. The size of this art piece is 6″X6″. After working on 1″x1″ squares, this size seemed huge. I started 2 pieces to help me loosen up. This is a practice piece and I most likely won’t end up using it but I haven’t posted in a while I wanted to show you what I’ve been up to!
