We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

This work is inspired by a dream I had about a fair man who I didn’t quite know or recognize. He handed me a gift.. and when I opened my hand, a beautiful big green butterfly blossomed out. The very next morning as I was about to take my daughter to school, there in my front yard was a fair-haired man who I had only met once before a few months earlier.. and he said “I’ve come to bear you some gifts”. I was stunned!.. one of the gifts was a Cairns Birdwing Butterfly chrysalis.. the one in this image. A beautiful big green male butterfly, and these photos were taken shortly after he hatched. The open-winged shot was taken as he was drying his wings just moments before his first flight.

    wow, this is a fantastic image…very surreal…

  • Thank you Jewd :-) Its probably not the way i would have done it, but i was in a bit of a hurry. I will eventually create an artwork which was more how i envisaged it in my dream. Thanks again for your comments :-)
