Butterfly Delivery Day at Ronald McDonald House Baltimore

I’m really excited because the very first butterfly giveaway installation is complete! In early May I spent the day at Ronald McDonald House Charities Maryland in Baltimore at their brand new location, which opened May 14th! This 18×24 boy and girl duo was the brainchild of their artistic director Leslie Landsman and the dragonflies and butterflies were pinned on the wall in a heart shape to pay homage to the logo of the charity. Scroll through the pictures for more details about the process! I’ve never nailed my artwork directly to the wall before, it was a little nerve wracking!  To cover up the nail holes, I brought a touch of extra paint and covered each hole to match the body of each butterfly and dragonfly.

For those of you new to the project, this is the first installation of a “buy one, give one” campaign where for every butterfly or dragonfly sold, a second is created and donated to a non-profit that serves its customers directly. I’m so grateful for those that have purchased a butterfly or dragonfly so far, you all made this possible and sustainable. Thank you for helping to spread joy!
