A BUTTERFLY’S DREAM

A Butterfly’s Dream is dedicated to people who have the courage to follow their dreams even though they are not quite sure where the real world will take them.  Their strength, courage, and endurance are precisely the characteristics that make them vulnerable, but they don’t give up.  The challenging journey is worthwhile and commendable.  For some it is just a beautiful dream and for others it may realize into a beautiful dream.

A LIFE JOURNEY

“Life is a journey that must be traveled no matter how bad the roads and accommodations” – Oliver Goldsmith

Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life.  The process of their metamorphosis is impressive.  From egg to larvae (caterpillar), to pupa (the chrysalis or cocoon) and from the cocoon the butterflies emerge into their unfurling glory.  Many cultures associate butterflies with our souls.  Some cultures believe that butterflies represent endurance, change, hope, growth, rebirth, transformation, vulnerability, grace, life, and the ability to experience the wonder of life.  In many ways, butterflies are a reminder of the precious presence and magic in all of life.  Something we always should embrace.  The butterfly series feature paintings of butterflies in different settings and their transformation.  Their transformation is very reflective of ours.  Thus, it must be understood that life is a gift, and we should use that gift astutely.
