"MYSTERIOUS"
is the prompt this week at I.F.

"Art is the fatal net which catches these strange moments on the wing like mysterious butterflies, fleeing the innocence and distraction of common men."
~ Giorgo de Chirico

okay, this is not a new image. But, the quote sealed it's inclusion.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend

Oh how I love this image! I'd love to just pull up a chair, make a cup of tea and settle in to have a chat with this lovely lady :-)

Hope you had a lovely weekend too.

I planed to have a shadow of a butterfly in my illustration, no one so far...
yours are beautiful, and the way they fly inside and outside the woman's dress is remarkable ;:OD)

Nice week to you ♥

I adore this piece! Love the whole thing - especially her big cup and the butterflies. :)

naomi orana said...

yes, her cup is a bit big and of an unusual size, I think when i first started on the sketch it was bird food but has since morphed...

Mariangela Licciardello said...

Ana said...

I love the different patterns, beautiful work ♥

Gentle textures and patterns fill her, as though floating through her essence where they are usually unseen. Lovely piece.
