keeping place

As a kid, it always fascinated me out to put insects, toads, etc. in a jar, yet after awhile, it became a little creepy watching them bat around and eventually sit lethargic at the bottom of the jar. We would eventually let them go, with me left feeling sort of guilty for doing it in the first place. Yet when I was at one of my favorite antique markets awhile ago, I found butterflies mounted behind glass and was again intrigued to see these little creatures up close and in detail. I almost bought it, but somehow couldn't bring myself to do it! So instead I did this little painting on wood. It should suffice for now.
