Here is my finished painting for the “Spirit Animal” show. I have to say, I love what butterflies represent more than butterflies themselves. I’m not super feminine or girly, I imagine “Lisa Frank” trapper keepers every time I think of “girly,” so it was a stretch for me to go in this direction, but the symbolism of transition/change is ever relevant in all of our lives.

It may be a challenge to embrace the inevitable changes in our lives, but if you look at the butterfly, they welcome change and become even more beautiful as a result.

Corny? Yes. You can go throw up now.
