Butterfly (Acrylics) Daily Art and Writing 04-25-2017

As the caterpillar metamorphoses from drab caterpillar to colorful butterfly, as Jesus went from the tomb to the glory of heaven, I, too, will obtain new life and beauty if I stay true to my calling and destiny.

"It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by.  How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment?  For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone.  That is where the writer scores over his fellows:  he catches the changes of his mind on the hop."  ~Vita Sackville-West

The common and unattractive caterpillar becomes a colorful butterfly by persevering though slow and painful changes.
