Just as the monarch butterflies complete their migration to Mexico, we have safely reached Mesa, Arizona. Farewell to family and friends in the North. You are missed. Like the monarch butterflies we will be back in the Spring. My watercolor palette today has Quinacridone Red and Bismuth yellow to create the orange of the monarch butterfly's wing. Paynes Gray and indigo will create the dark contrast. Feel free to express the exhilaration of migration. Good reading is Mary Alice Monroe's "The Butterfly's Daughter"
