Art and Positive Thinking

Welcome to my Renee Loves Art blog!

My focus is exploring, creating and reflecting upon the positives of life and connecting them to my art whether it be photography, pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, mixed media, digital media or any other possible media I dive into!

Pollinators Positively Pollinate Joy, Drawing Challenge

Tammie Lee's drawing challenge this week is...

Have you ever been kissed by a butterfly?     I HAVE!

Have you ever had a butterfly land on your head?    I HAVE!

Have you ever had a butterfly land on your shoe and stay for a visit?    I HAVE!

Have you ever had a butterfly land on your finger?     I HAVE!

Butterflies not only pollinate flowers...

they pollinate joy!


  1. Oh my gosh that's so lovely and so true Renee! Christmas 2014 was in England and we had a hibernating peacock butterfly in the house and we had to hoik her know, be cruel to be kind. So we put her in a wood pile and she survived! Why am I telling you this? Oh yeah, I had her sitting on my finger for the longest time and it was so lovely I didn't want to let her go. And every time I think of it it makes me smile, so yes, def. pollinating joy! x

  2. wonderful drawing. sadly, the only time I've been close to a butterful, was a few inches and they usually flies away before I get to even joy seeing them.

    hope you have a lovely day.

  3. so wonderful to have butterflies land on us. i think they might like our salt, but perhaps it is our spirit too. I have a friend that has it happen often, he loves lots of salt on his food. last weekend when i saw my first butterflies of the year (have not seen any more) one landed in my hair, i was delighted.

    Your journal page is so lovely, is this the one for your grandchildren?

    1. No, I did this one in my own journal, not for my granddaughter.

  4. You're right, they do spread joy, as well as pollen! Yours are lovely!

  5. This is so true! Butterflies always make me smile! And your artwork did it, too! :-)

  6. yes, joy - you are so right!!
    your paintings are wonderful - now I hope, tomorrow a butterfly will land on my head!
    :-) mano

    1. I actually used pencil crayons for the butterfly and flower! I had no clue until this summer that I could make pencil crayons look like paint!

  7. you are right, your interpretation of the theme is lovely , when i see a butterfly it makes me smile, i follow it with my eyes,
    the printed pages shining through are adding interest and motion,together with your detailed painting and the joyful letters a fine piece of work Renee, x

  8. i wouldn't mind for a butterfly to come and keep me company for a while. in fact, i hear keats reciting .... n♥

  9. Such a lovely art journal of the pollinator! I know I have had one or more sitting on me, but it's a long time since that happened. They are bringing so much joy :)

  10. This is a great page! I wish for summer and the kiss of a butterfly! ;)
