Butterflies at the Museum

For one of my last drawing classes, we went to the Museum of Natural History. Our assignment was (as always) draw loads, but in addition to the usual draw, draw, draw, we had to create a promotional postcard for the museum using one of our drawings.

I actually had a really great drawing day and came out with a bunch of things I liked, but halfway through a drawing of some ducks, a security guard came up to me and asked if I wanted to check out the butterfly conservatory. Apparently he'd found a ticket on the floor that needed to be used within the next fifteen minutes. I hastily agreed and headed to the conservatory.

For those of you who don't know, when I was a little girl, I had two "pet" butterflies; they made an appearance in our backyard every summer, and provided you were patient enough, they landed on any outstretched hand our arm.

It was an easy decision... I designed my postcard around the drawings I did at the conservatory.
