Inspired by my passion for Texas culture and natural beauty, the traffic box artwork showcases native Texas wildflowers in my signature impressionistic illustration style.

Joy Chandler, Artist of “Show Me A Sign”, found inspiration for this piece after spying on a monarch butterfly on a local Gaillardia flower also known as a Mexican blanket.  It’s a mixed piece that begins with a strong contour line of the subject. With water, tissue paper, and watercolors.  Joy says,  "I begin a creative process that allows the materials to flow freely adding color and dimension to the work. Once the painting dries, I then create contrast with colored pencils sometimes focusing on the geometric shapes that appear and sometimes more on the subject creating a push and pull through space. I think about the beauty of the subject and its place here on earth. I want to draw attention to this beauty to remind us to take care of and respect their space ...their place. After all, we ALL deserve our own space and place in this world". Copyright © [Joy Chandler] [2023]
