Monarch for Arty Girlz

Monarchs are so beautiful, at least to me they are. When I had an exhibition few years ago people came to me with their amazing stories related to butterflies. It was a very inspiring evening and also a chance to hear so many personal accounts in how many different and magical ways these tiny Gods creations have touched peoples lives. It seemed that everyone had a different but nevertheless deep and meaningful experience. Many of the ancient civilizations believed that butterflies were symbols of the human soul. In Aztec culture they are related to souls of the dead and are celebrated as such in Dias de Los Muertos . Im just amazed with their icredible beauty and fragility and have painted many without ever getting tired of the subject .
