Little Boy Blue

I often mention my fellow friend in weirdness, insanity, art, and whatever ever else can be considered strange in this world, Marguerite Bryant, in posts on my blog. Yesterday she outdid herself. (Well, she just about outdoes herself every day, but . . . )

I sent a butterfly I created to the special project being sponsored by the Holocaust Museum in Houston. Each butterfly will represent one of the 1,500,000 innocent children who lost their lives in the holocaust. Marguerite joined me and others like Seth Apter and sent in a butterfly, too. However, she was so moved by the purpose of the project, that M (as we affectionately call her) is creating a butterfly every day for an entire year. She even created a special blog so we could see her daily creations.

Yesterday she created this butterfly:


Isn't that the cutest little butterfly you have ever seen? Oh! That just happens to be my grandson Corben. Wow! (I bet you knew that was coming.)

You really should visit Marguerites blog and see all of the other butterflies she has already made. Just click here to go to her blog:  http://mybutterflyyear.blogspot.com/ Corben was day 63, so you have 62 other butterflies you can enjoy looking at.

If you would like to read more about the butterfly project, just click here: http://hmh.org/ed_butterfly1.shtml Anyone with any artistic inclination should participate!

Have a great art day!
