Firefly Farm

Recently, one evening we were in our car at a friend's house, waiting for our daughter to come back from car-pooled youth group.  We saw our first fireflies for the season and then we saw two small glowing lights going up in the sky.  No, it wasn't a UFO, but two beautiful glowing lanterns that people release.  We watched as they ascended into the night sky and eventually they dimmed and burnt out.  A few minutes later we saw another set going up.  It was captivating to watch and we felt like we had front row seats to our own little light show.  I was inspired by the glowing lights to do this firefly painting and show their glowing lights ascend into a dark summer sky.
