TAKE A WORD - BUTTERFLIES


This week  our word for inspiration at Take a Word is BUTTERFLIES and that reminded me of what I found in my garden pond this morning.    When she had bathed enough she unfolded her glistening wings and took flight to I know not where.

Thank you for looking.

Oh, this is just matchlessly glorious! Even while it loaded on my screen, it kept giving me little jolts, with each phase, which made me gasp a little bit each time. Beautiful!!!!!!

Judy said...

Amazing piece as always, Ann!

I remember this image which was originally a magazine cover. Imagine being able to buy magazines with artwork covers instead of all the dross we see today. Beautiful take on the butterfly theme - very dramatic and vibrant.

Bill said...

How beautiful! I think every human actually has a little bit of butterfly in us. We all want to learn how to fly.

FABULOUS Ann!!!!
( I had to laugh about Judy's comment, well perhaps she now on her way to Holland. Our dog sleeps all day whahaaaaaa)
But ahum...I hardly dare to give you a tip because your art always speaks to me...And I forgot which program you use....your reflection is indeed PERFECT as June mensioned but perhaps the next time you can give it a little filter → gausian blur or Filter → wind ?
PHEW..I told you whahaaaa. Just to HELP you okay, I don NOT want to offend you !!!!

So gorgeous! Thankfully I don't have a pond in the garden (or even a garden!), Because such a visit could put my marriage at risk! :D
