It started simply, a few butterflies on a canvas. But then the madness began. Another one showed up and another and another. I wanted light blue butterflies for the new life I was creating, like it used to be, gentle and simple. And from that place more and more came and I could not stop and they all wanted out. More butterflies emerged, managing to break through. Butterflies of daylight, and night butterflies; moving butterflies and still ones. The painting tries to redefine beauty in a closed space and break through new horizons.
