21"w x29"h Original Monoprint in Oil on paper. Mounted and framed by the artist with non-glare Plexi. Part of a series Sharon created while in Mexico after visiting the Mariposa Monarca Bioreserva where the monarchs migrate in the winter. They usually arrive in November and hibernate until sometime in February and then they mate. It’s an incredibly quiet and peaceful place high in the mountains of central Mexico, at 12,000 ft elevation. It feels spiritual. After they mate, the males die and the pregnant females leave for the trip north. After laying eggs along the way, the females die and a whole new generation starts, and the cycle goes on. Due to climate change, the migration paths and the habitats of the special trees the monarchs hibernate in are in danger. There are fewer and fewer monarchs returning to this special place in Mexico.
