This is a continuation of a series of paintings that I started a few months ago, with a geometric tan background.  I've been wanting to paint butterflies ever since going to the zoo with my son for his fifth birthday.  We went though an exhibit with beautiful butterflies.  Here's a shot that I took while visiting.

While my butterflies don't look exactly like the ones in the photo, I was definitely inspired by them.  I love the meaning behind butterflies.  They are a symbol of hope.  I'm thinking of a friend tonight that is in the hospital with her mom, who just underwent a serious surgery.  I am praying for her tonight and hope these butterflies bring her peace and hope.
