This month's challenge is "Flying Colors"......BUTTERFLIES
First, the words....my corny little poem:
There are still so many people,
Who think Earth's an accident,
They numbly don't appreciate,
When things are heaven-sent.
Take the simple butterfly,
In a thousand different forms,
So many colors and designs,
So many graceful charms.
If God had formed a committee,
When the butterfly was made,
You can bet it would be funny,
To hear what things were said.
There'd be a big discussion,
And a multitude of gripes,
"Do we need so many colors?
And why so many types?"
But God, in all His wisdom,
Said "Here's the nitty-gritty...
They're a special gift to mankind,
So I want them downright pretty!"
My little crew of judges will choose their favorite, who will receive the world famous and highly coveted little grab-bag of "James' Tiny Texas Treasures" !!!!! Then...my sister, Margaret, and two of her friends, Lucy and Linda, will choose their favorite, who will receive their choice of a fused dichroic glass pendant or cross wall hanging from her shop... Mag's Marvels on Etsy. (you can click Mag's Marvels to visit)
Sneak Preview.... June's challenge will be challenging....reflections. BUT the BIG JULY EVENT will be a "POOCH PORTRAIT EXCHANGE". July being the month of flag waving and Hot Dogs, get your favorite photo of your dog (past or present) ready to send in for an artist swap...you will receive a photo of another artist's dog to put to the painted pet portrait test. Should be a bunch of fun....more later.
