Photograph in Metamorphosis


Recently I've been searching for descriptions to help better describe my process working with photographs. Discouraged in not finding the words I was looking for, I decided to go back and search my personal art images to inspire my thoughts and hopefully find one that spoke to me and helped me translate my visual art into words.  In the process I came across this butterfly piece that I did originally in honor of a friend who had passed and the butterfly meant something to me about her transition at that time.  I posted about it years ago in a previous post. But today it spoke to me in a different way and was rekindled to verbalize how closely I feel about each individual photograph and the transformation it takes into one of my pieces of art. Thank you for allowing me to share this with you.
