So, after talking with Nick I decided to start an etsy account. Last night I uploaded several of my smaller pieces- collages and paintings. Right now they are flowers and butterfly. I haven't listed them here because,... well I just haven't. My username is midnightbutterfly22 just like my email or The top and bottom images are magazine collages and the middle is a magazine collage transfer(where I remove the paper backing). It is always fun to experiment.

Letting Go

There is a story behind this piece. I received a leaf necklace for Mothers day from family, after I had my miscarriage. Like my necklace, the leaf in the painting represents our child. It will be two years this February, and I still find it very difficult to let go of the loss.

I had the desire to get back into painting, after going into collage pieces for so long. I haven't decided if I want to add to the background any. However, I like my barren tree.
