First Friday in Waxhaw

It was a beautiful evening to be painting on the sidewalk in Waxhaw, NC. I decided to try painting my yellow swallowtail butterfly that I had printed on canvas. The printer roll ran out and only printed two thirds of the picture. They gave me the half printed canvas since they were going to have to throw it away. I drew in the missing part of the wing and using acrylics, repainted the whole thing with the colors that were already there. Here is the result. Poetry in motion!


This is my finished painting of the Photo in the background.

This was the finished product after I painted over the whole print with the same colors that were on the original photo. As you can see I love painting as well as writing poetry. I do a lot of my paintings on recycled canvases that I buy at the Habitat For Humanity Restore where I volunteer, and fix things for them to resale, two afternoons a week.
