My customers are so amazing. They have a lot of clarity that snaps me out of the muddle that consumes me when day job, artwork, etsy orders and motherhood all cloud my vision. A very smart lady suggested a quotation about living one’s life TODAY as the subject of an artwork. i already have an artwork entitled “Today is the Day” in my repertoire. But this one is more of a graphic intended to inspire a younger viewer in a more whimsical way. It just so happened i was working on a digital collage with butterflies and it just all seemed to fall into place.
This artwork is composed of an original watercolor i painted last week while our power was out. i sat in the window and just got lost in the powerless silence.
i added a series of 3 hand-drawn butterflies which i layered over the watercolor and many blades of grass and sparkles i added in with my new graphics tablet.
…and there you go. Don’t keep your fluttery self on a shelf for a better day. Spread your wings today and flit about to your heart’s content.
