This little mixed media shrine was my prayer during Holy Week. I started with a sunrise watercolor, some hand painted paper, an old embellished cross, a feather, a couple of magazines and a mint container. I’m always in awe as the mysterious process unfolds.
The Monarch butterfly is the symbol for transformation and Easter, of course, and is dwindling in numbers.
This year during Holy Week there was an observation honoring both the Monarch and the 50th anniversary of Rachel Carson’s death ( she wrote Silent Spring- a game changer that brought the need to care for the environment to public awareness). It all meshed together as I worked and the little shrine became about the promise of new life that is Easter.
What would our world be like without the beautiful butterfly? What would our lives be like without the promise of the Resurrection?
