Cactus Monday - Judy Butler

I am dedicating this Cactus Monday to Judy Butler. Judy is a wonderful artist, Mother, Wife, Grandmother and Friend. She has a blog named Naturalist Journal: Down the Nature Trail. I got to know Judy through her blog. She has been the most supportive about my nature journaling. If you take a look at her blog you can see what a gift this has been for me. Thank you Judy.
Sadly for us all Judy is losing her battle with cancer. Her spirit will live on in all of us that love
nature and especially Cactus Monday which Judy always participated in when she could. For more about Judy and other Cactus Monday art go to Teri's Painted Daisies.

beautiful and so fitting to create a journal page as a tribute.

I didn't know her long, but I could tell she was a wonderful soul.

Mixed emotions on this one, Lisa...I am so sad to hear about Judy's passing. She was such a fun, and loving person. She will be missed by so many people...I am so glad her family will leave her blog up so others can enjoy her art. Your painting here is touching...I hope Judy can see all of the love pouring out to her!
xoxo- Julie
