This week on Butterfly Effect, the theme is A Poem or A Quote.
Here is what I painted in response.
There were so many quotes about Nature that inspired this painting....
"And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair"
I fully intended to pick one and write the words onto the painting....
"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect."
But I didn't want to cover up anything once she was done.
So I wrote my chosen quote on the back instead.
"Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty
if only we have the eyes to see them."
