Café Crem

Art, Music and Words around The Coffee Table


My butterfly has been quite reluctant to emerge. This is what she looks like this morning. Murky.

  1. Murky! great word! I don’t think I’ve seen a murky butterfly before, perhaps a murky moth…..:-)

    She looks like she’s landing on velvet.

  2. It’s funny you mention velvet. I thought the same thing after it was done, and it reminded me of the Red Velvet Monster piece I did last year–
    And I see that piece was inspired by my Murky Pond photo…hmmm…things come ’round full circle.

    Oh Kev — I thought you might appreciate this bit of trivia. I created these background patterns for my butterfly from a photo I took of chocolate syrup swirling around in melting ice cream. Yum 🙂

  3. Beautiful, Shelley… looks for me as if the wings are made of glass…
    By the way: Kevin is trying hard to forget the existence of chocolate!!!!

  4. Wings of glass…what a lovely idea! Thank you Miki 🙂

    Forget chocolate?!? (You must be kidding)

  5. Chocolate and I are uneasy bedfellows…I fear it seeks to bring about my downfall, after it has fattened me up.
