SAVE THE MONARCH ART PROJECT
SAVE THE MONARCH
The monarch butterfly is in trouble and the milkweed plant population, which is indispensable to the monarch, is also becoming more and more sparse.
Milkweed plants are the only source of food for the monarch caterpillar. But these plants are rapidly disappearing, due to the loss of habitat stemming from land development and the widespread spraying of weed killer on the fields where they live.
I am going to paint a series of monarch paintings this year and donate proceeds from the hopeful sales of those paintings to the Canadian Wildlife Federation…my way of giving back beauty to the beauty.
I hope you will follow my journey.
With love, Sharon
