Carnegie Butterfly

This is the metal butterfly I painted for the Carnegie Visual Art's "Arts-a-Flutter". The butterfly was purchased by parents of the 5th Grade Class at Eastwood Elementary School in honor of the 5th Grade Class and in memory of Alison Drake, a treasured classmate that was lost to illness during their third grade year. It can be seen on the corner of Gordon Drive and 8th St. for those of you in Decatur City. I am honored to have been asked to participate in this event!

The field trips represented are: The Princess Theater, Montgomery Capitol, Wetlands Edge, Huntsville Train Depot, Botanical Gardens, Tate Farms, White Farms, a day at the Pointe Mallard Baseball field playing baseball, and Space Camp. No, not every field trip made the cut! Design over content this time! I hope you enjoy!
