Birds, butterflies, nature

I find inspiration for art mainly in nature. No one can recreate the magic that is in nature, but that doesnt stop one from making collages!
Last year I made a quick getaway to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. I love having a stop-over holiday in Singapore (always lots to do) and another visit had been on my agenda for I had not ticked off all the boxes on my Singapore list. Jurong Bird Park was beckoning me. It was just delightful. So was the butterfly garden.    Totally amazing !!






       The butterflies were there in the hundreds!! All flittering away and real teasers too.  I tell you it is very very hard to photograph them. It was a totally inspiring trip for me.




This work represents some of that inspiration.
