“Butterflies add another dimension to the garden, for they are like dream flowers—childhood dreams—which have broken loose from their stalks and escaped into the sunshine. Air and angels...” written by groundbreaking butterfly researcher Mariam Rothschild.
My optimism towards life at my daughter’s remission from cancer inspired this garden path shown dissolving into a swirling sky with one white butterfly like an angel. I painted this after seeing the famous garden of the impressionist artist Claude Monet at Giverny in France.
