It’s Been a Long Time Since We Were Butterflies….But I don’t Mind
It makes me smile! I was working on this painting and butterflies kept showing up. I kept trying to turn them into something else, because I’m not really a butterflies, rainbows and unicorns kind of girl (although they do make me smile). I was listening to the radio and I heard the Alt band Cake singing “Long Time” and at one point I thought they sang, “it’s been a long time since we were butter-fly-y-y-y-y-y-y-y-s” (of course, that’s not the lyric…it’s “since you gave me butter-fly-y-y-y-y-y-y-ys”). But my mind started to swirl around that idea….what would that mean if we had been butterflies and aren’t now?
I thought of butterflies that are beautiful and flit around….it made me think of youth. I’m not as young and beautiful as I once was, but I don’t actually mind. I love what maturing and wisdom have brought me. I also love the new beautiful I am and the beauty I can create for the world. So, It’s Been a Long Time Since We Were Butterflies….But I don’t Mind. What do the butterflies mean for you? My lovely late friend, Lynn True, thought that butterflies were divine messengers. When they crossed your path, it meant everything was going well for those who have passed to the other side. So from Lynn on the other side, I will take these butterflies as a divine message….thanks for letting me know!
We are meaning making machines….that’s completely what my paintings are about. What do they mean for you, how do you create an empowering story around your life and how do you hold it in place? I think art is an amazing way to do that. It’s lasting, it holds an image that can take you back to that empowering place. You can build a story around it that lasts your lifetime, and then you can pass it down to generations. How can I help you build an empowering story for your life and for your legacy?
Each of my paintings are designed as ambassadors and support for your life. As I paint, I infuse them with the energy that will actually raise the vibrational level of your space and support you in living your highest and best life. That’s what I do….what will you do?
