Monarch Butterfly Mandala Fine Art Print – Monarch Dreams II

$49.00

Monarch butterfly mandala fine art print is 12″ by 12″ on acid-free, cotton rag paper. Titled Monarch Dreams II, this piece started as a photograph of a monarch butterfly visiting a butterfly bush in my gardens at Yellow Bird’s Rest, near Morgantown, West Virginia. The energy is soft and, well, floaty. Look carefully for the tiny monarch butterfly hitching a ride on one of the lavender baubles. She’s figured out the smart way to migrate.

Price includes shipping within the U.S. using the carrier of my choice.

About the Paper. I print on Aurora Art Natural 250 paper. Aurora is made from cotton linters. These linters are considered "recovered fibers" by the EPA, so this paper is a sustainable choice in that regard. The paper has a natural, warm white tone and semi-smooth surface, so has enough tooth to hold plenty of ink while producing a sharp image.

About the Inks. I use pigment inks, which resist fading. If you frame your print using UV acylic or glass and hang it away from bright light, the chances of it fading before fifty years have elapsed is very low. Your print will stay vibrant throughout your lifetime and beyond.

About the art. This mandala art, titled Monarch Dreams II, started as a photograph of a monarch butterfly visiting a butterfly bush in my gardens at Yellow Bird's Rest, near Morgantown, West Virginia. Butterfly bush is invasive, with seeds that can remain dormant in the seed bank for years. The seeds can even build up in a lawn, just waiting for some sort of disturbance to provide the right conditions for germination. Almost a decade ago, I dug all the butterfly bushes out of my garden and planted chokeberries, cardinal flower, great blue lobelia, and other native plants in their place. Although the butterflies really did enjoy the nectar provided by the butterfly bushes, they seem to also enjoy the new items I've added to the menu.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
