Illustration Friday: Wiggle


It's been a while since we've checked in on our little winged butterbabies.  Oooh, look.  We're just in time to witness one wiggling out of her little chrysalis now.

I keep hearing David Attenborough's voice in my head.  Can anyone else hear him, too?  Or is it just me?

My apologies for being absent from visiting lately.  It's been quite busy at the home front, and I've been stuck in a creative funk.    But I hope that will change.

Hope everything is good where you are.

Oh please, please write and illustrate a book telling their whole story. I just love them!Such hope and help for each other.

Andrea is right. How wonderful would it be to illustrate a story about monarch butterfly propagation! They love asclepias. Always a treat to see you. Oh wait, you are the only reason why I blog these days.

I see no funk in this lovely piece.
those chrysalis look so real and beautiful like pearls. Such a cute cute piece, it makes me smile.

thank you for your messages ~

Wishing you and your girls a lovely Mother's day!

This is amazingly cute! Attenborough wasn't on my mind - until you said it, now I hear it sooo clearly! lol

Hi Bella,

Oh yes, I can hear David Attenborough's voice - enjoy watching his Nature shows and I love seeing the gorgeous Monarch butterflies hatching from the chrysalis.
Happy Mothers day dear friend and hope you are having a wonderful weekend

OMG how delightful are these lovely little creatures. So charming and sweet... would look perfect in a nursery or young ladies room. Bravo my dear! ((HUGS))

Oh wow, this is a rare occurrence. One never sees four chrysalis all in a row. When I was a little kid I saw a chrysalis hanging from a limb and thought it was an alien seed pod. I was so fascinated I reached out to touch it, but when I did so it jumped as if alive! I yanked my hand back so fast I sprained my wrist. Nice butterbabies, Bella.

I saw monarch butterflies in my garden!!! I planted asclepius and sure enough the butterflies started coming. How are you today? I need some downtime. Love you. Tsup!

Bonjour chère amie,

Je passe mon temps en ce moment à tenter de capturer avec l'objectif de mon appareil photo les papillons de ma région...
J'admire ton merveilleux dessin qui met en valeur de très beaux papillons... Quel bonheur que d'admirer ton travail à chaque fois !

Gros bisous ☼

Aaaah my goodness, the adorable babies. Perfect, every one.

If I were going to hear voices, David Attenborough would be a fine choice. ;D
