Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This drawing is part of a series featuring elaborate borders. There is another original drawing very much like it called "Sepia Butterfly with Border" here: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/lisewinne/5985610/butterfly_in_sepia_ink_with_border_4_x_6_original_drawing_oswoa/fine_art/drawing/ink
Much of my art is influenced by Renaissance, Victorian and Celtic art.
I created this piece using a fine point pen.
I made this design in the heat of summer after the butterfly drawing. Drawing small was a way to keep cool.
