Butterflies and Tidal Waves

I'm working on this for a local contest - 6 winners will have their artwork posted on billboards in our town...the size was a little challenging - it was 7 x 20". It gave me the chance to work on something about the Butterfly Effect theory which states that a butterfly's flapping wings can effect the weather in a drastic way somewhere across the world. I think this is true pretty much about everything...one small gesture (good or bad) can cause huge consequences somewhere else...what do you think?
you can also see it here without being cut off at the right side...

i don't know what's going on at the website - it's not working for me either - i'll have to check it out...

as for the painting...well, i dropped it off and am now feeling it was pretty sub-par compared to many others i saw there...and i'm not just saying that for reassurance...we were supposed to be told July 13 who was chosen and now it's changed to Aug 7 - there has been one change after another for this thing but it's still kind of cool...oh well, maybe next year...

Hi Angela! the summer is all over the place because i'm home with the girls - i usually go in when i can so it's not consistent so give me a call and we can plan a time...after the girls go back to school it's more like 11-3 Tue-Friday and some Saturdays...talk soon

it was so nice yesterday! we have to do that more!
