My Mother's Day present from my boys was this lovely trinket box by Portmeirion Pottery. I already have a few pieces in this range but had never seen this square shaped box before. I particularly love the little additional butterfly and dragonfly on the side of the packaging and inside the box.

Since my Painting a Day venture in February I've been very sluggish in starting my insect based ideas for March, so it seemed serendipitous (one of my favourite words!) that this gift should remind me how much I love these little creatures and so I took myself off to the studio to begin!

This butterfly is bigger than ones I've painted in the past and I think I might try something similar as a reduction linoprint next.
