Wow, I love butterflies and the spiritual message they hold. They have always given me a feeling of hope and that everything will be okay. I had some challenges this past week, and I was facing some fears, and learning to be strong and have courage.
A little like a butterfly when they are hanging out in the cocoon before they emerge as butterflies. When they first flutter their beautiful wings and fly through the flower garden they do so with courage and strength. They know they can fly anywhere and they have their own built in protection of their camouflaged wings. This is why I decided to paint butterflies. I am literally painting my own wings of courage so I can be strong and courageous and face anything life has to give me.
The butterfly is one of totem spirit animals, and I painted my first in 2015, and now I have continued with my butterfly creations!! On Saturday September 26, I painted the first Mini Butterfly painting called JoyBug, and I felt so much happier after. Today, I painted the OrangeBug, and the next one will be completed later tonight. There will be 30 paintings in total in this series, ranging in price from $150 to $250 each.
I am so excited about painting butterflies, and have invited my artist friend Linda Casano to paint with me on Saturday October 3rd from Noon to 5pm. We will have many butterfly paintings for sale. Looking forward to sharing artist expression. Art makes the world a happier place!!
