Spirit of the Butterfly

Spirit of the Butterfly

Scene:  This is a painting of Jenny at the Magic Wings Butterfly House which we visited with my friend, Deanna, in Durham, NC.

Inspiration:  The butterflies represent all the important people in our lives who have helped us along the way.  Like the butterflies that surround us, they often do not even realize the impact they have had on us.  It is their "spirit" which they share so freely with us that it leaves us in awe.  Watching a butterfly is like watching a child dance; We are mesmorized by their simple sincerity and lifted by their honest expression of emotion.

This is the signature painting and poem for my "Spirit of the Butterfly" Series.
