Another butterfly (my fav creature in the world) created by drawing the wings and body outline (more than fifty elements) and using paint to duplicate it and add body texture.
First totally golden butterfly I have ever created.
Butterflies to me represent hope for the world and the people in it. they are indeed one of the things that make it a truely Wonderful World (Musical Inspiration:) . By just being gold it emphasises the fragility of these wonderful creatures who need to be nurtured at every stage of their existence. They have an etherealness about them that makes me think that they are the closest things that we have to faeries. They also represent all that is feminine – strong, beautiful, resilient & graceful.
