The Mourning Cloak Butterfly is also known as Nymphalis antiopa. It is one of the first butterflies to emerge in the spring. The Mourning cloak overwinters in the butterfly stage which is very unusual for an adult. They spend the winter frozen in "cryo-preservation" in tree cavities, beneath loose tree bark or in unheated buildings. When the temperatures start to thaw the Mourning Cloak butterfly reawakens and is one of the first signs of spring.

I am happy to announce my new online Wonderful World of Watercolor Class will start this fall on September 21, 2016. I want to thank all my fellow artists for the overwhelming success of my Foundation Drawing and Drawing Plants classes. For the past year I have had requests from all corners of the world asking me to do more online classes. I spent May, June and July designing, painting, shooting and editing this new 12 week class in response to YOUR REQUESTS! It takes me a long time to do this because….. I do it all! …….. Drawing the Beauty of Nature!
