"Take a Word:" Butterflies




This quotation was my inspiration for this digital collage. If you look closely, you'll see that the butterflies were "constructed" from of images of flowers. (I recently discovered the "cookie-cutter" tool in PSE 5.) As I gaze out at a chilly gray day, hear reports of upcoming bad weather, and nurse an annoying cold, this collage warms me.
