I recently finished a small 12" x 12" butterfly commission for a repeat customer. It felt great to deliver it yesterday and see her so excited. The yellow flowers and edges of the butterfly have tiny pieces, and there are glass bead inclusions for the butterfly's eyes and the flower centers.
I will be attending an artists' reception tonight at Archipelago, here is an article about it that was recently published in the Knox Village Soup.
