Butterfly Dreams

Dedicated to My Sister Mary Lou Cupp who has been an inspiration to me over the years...I call her "Iron Butterfly" because she is so fragile yet so strong...taken from the Band "Iron Butterfly"...I wish I could be more like her...she has mastered many areas of life I still strive to attain. It is her Birthday May First and I wanted to share that with you. We are Sisters and like all sisters grew up with our differences but, through it all we have learned from each other. Mary told me about the movie the "Butterfly Effect" last year and so in honor of her and that movie I tried to create something beautiful...this was started last year and the thought of it was conceived of then...I am not really finished with this piece but, I wanted to post it anyway. It took allot of hours because it was created in just a basic Microsoft Paint Program and Phto Editor...only my second purely didgital work, the tools used were minimal...It may not be as perfect or as glossed as other of your more advance works of art in digital programs...but it was created for My Sister. Happy Birthday Mary!!! Mary also has studied art and phtography and has some submissions on this site...if you would take the the time to look at her work I am sure she would be thrilled...Love Chris

Artist Reply: Greetings Brandon! It was very kind of you to comment on my work. I am glad that you like this image. IT TOOK ME AROUND 6 MONTHS TO DO THIS IMAGE. My hand hurt after, hehehe! I guess, it was because I was using the Basic Microsoft Paint Program. It did not have any fancy brush strokes or manipulations, just crude lines that needed to be blended with the smudge tool, the only way to mix the colors. I did not do a preliminary sketch either. Kind of created this as I went. Not many comment on this image, so I was pleased that it caught your eye. It was wonderful to share a monemt with you. I hope all goes well with you there and you get to come back home soon. Lots of Love CB
