Inspired by the Western Monarch Butterflies and their fall migration along the California coastline (from Mendocino to Baja), where they seek moderate temperatures and protection from storms by clustering in tree groves.
The arrival of the mariposa (monarch butterfly) along the coast signals a cultural beginning to autumn. The butterflies also symbolize change, transformation, rebirth, hope, and abundance.
In this course we take on the challenge of painting a cluster of migrating butterflies. Think of it almost like a puzzle, not only do we want to paint the wings, bring attention to their decline but how to create the depth that we want in the complicated subject matter.
