Went to see the Monarch butterflies today at the sanctuary at Natural Bridges State Park in Santa Cruz, California.  They have a lovely, swampy area with eucalyptus trees where the butterflies stop to rest on their migration.  This year, the day was particularly nice (some years, it's been overcast and cold so the butterflies weren't active).  A couple photos from the day...

They're barely gone but I already miss seeing cherry blossoms. Here's a collection from various artists: cherry blossoms paintings
FineArtAmerica has so many great artists who do dark art (one of my newer interests): dark art paintings

New painting in a fresh new series...

First painting in the Timeless series, Raven in Dark Autumn.  I have been so inspired with the new Dreamscapes digital painting series that I decided to try to achieve the same effect with an actual painting. I am hoping to do three others to represent the seasons (backgrounds are done--need to add the ravens and seasonal elements).
