“The Flight of the Monarch”

Inspiration & Technique

Volunteering at the Butterfly House has been very inspirational to me. They commissioned me to do a faux stained glass piece for the entryway to the Native garden. This hangs there now as they continue efforts in helping to educate everyone on the importance of Butterflies.

Drawn on paper first, I put Plexi glass on top traced my drawing using Liquid lead. After it was drawn, I used glass paint and painted each piece, making sure to tap it to remove bubbles.
