Butterfly Wishes

"Butterfly Wishes"


This is a palette knife painting, done alla prima (all in one session), which I have been working on lately: trying to finish them all at once and not come back to make changes. I wanted to capture that feeling of movement and that a butterfly can so quickly move out of sight, so I tried to make the colors look like they were jumping off of the butterfly. That was fun to do!

The color yellow is symbolic for joy and intelligence. Green is symbolic for growth and prosperity. Orange is often inviting and symbolizes warmth and energy.


I chose these colors to invite you to God's intelligent love. He does what is best for us, in His timing not ours. He brings joy and peace of mind even in financial uncertainty. Those that really trust in Christ (and not in man's religions) face trials just the same, but we know He will provide and see us through, we know He is in control, and often we are favored and prosper in times of need so we can help others. My wish and prayer for you is to find His wisdom for the hard decisions and trust Him that everything will turn out for the best in your life.


All things work together for the good of those
who love God
and are called according to His purpose.
Romans 8:28
