I was invited to participated in an art exhibit at the SIU library for the "Day Of The Dead".  Tied into this is the disappearance of the Monarch butterfly.  The name of this piece is "Ephemeral" and it is
16  3/4"  x  17".

The natural order is  The evolutionary rhythm is eternal and unchangeable, even as it is the source of constant change.  Nature's dance is never personal.  It both creates and destroys, but life always emerges from death, and death from life. 
Generations have dismissed signs and warnings of global catastrophe and we are now watching our world die; not naturally, but from human greed, power, and narcissism.  As we have been taking and taking from our world, without gratitude and stewardship, we have been killing her. 
On this Day Of The Dead, we honor the natural life cycle
and we grieve what humans have wrought.
