I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.

    Sensitive observer as always, you are supporting your vision with a beautifully evolving technique in each new picture. I love today’s new group.

    I’m not sure how to interpret the title of this work – I’ve had many a man turn my life upside down in a good way at the beginning of a relationship and then six months later do completely the same thing in a bad way so I suppose it could mean both – beautiful image by the way.

  • you really hit it, FJ. the concept was the up and down, excitement and wooziness, confusion and regret, of relationships. thanks so much for sharing!
