Hello and Welcome
Here we are again, another Friday and another party:)
This week I have painted another version of 'Butterfly Souls'.
The original was one of the very first 'Long Ladies'
Usually my 'Long Ladies' send a message of hope, spirituality or mysticism but this one is a bit different.
The child is being 'taken', she is making the transition between life and death and her soul is becoming a butterfly. Never the less, this is not a morbid or even sad painting.The child is not afraid but quite accepting of the change she is experiencing and it is change that is the essence of the work.
The fact that change is inevitable in our lives and that it is a natural part of life. To accept ourselves and the realization that nothing is permanent. That embracing change can bring about new found strength, inner peace and courage. When we can accept change, learn from it and become all the better for experiencing it, change is no longer an enemy but a teacher.
