Port Townsend Jefferson County Leader Article features my Monarch Migration Painting:

Port Townsend Jefferson County Leader  This Week  Feb.26-March 4

Monarch Migration ll  acrylic on canvas   48 x 72 "  
 "Monarch butterflies that once covered 50 square acres of forest during their summer layover in central Mexico now occupy fewer than 3 acres, according to the latest census.
The numbers of the orange-and-black butterflies have crashed in the two decades since scientists began making a rough count of them, according to Mexico's National Commission of Natural Protected Areas.
At a news conference Wednesday, the commission said the count was down 59 percent from December 2011 levels, when the insects filled 7.14 acres of fir trees in central Mexico."

This was my entry this year for the Tomie dePaola Award.
Tomie's directions were to  illustrate the poem, Sneeze  with  an 8 by 8"inch composition
using any color or medium. The illustration was to target the 2 months to 2 year age group!
You can find the other entries in the Unofficial Gallery of the Tomie dePaola Award

My black and white  illustration of Little Women won an honorable mention from Tomie dePaola last year. It was a challenge to have to use only black and white!
