Our friend Christa painted this butterfly for my husband and myself. We had requested one of her paintings and it seems that instead of one already completed, she painted this just for us. I have always believed that any artist, composer, etc leaves a piece of themselves in their work. No doubt this is true of Christa. The canvas she used is one that was once her artist pallet. We feel as if we have a part of all of her previous paintings as well. This is a special piece and we are pleased and proud to have it in our home. It is sitting on the mantle where it can be looked upon, admired, and enjoyed daily. We are grateful for Christa and our friendship with her. Thank you Christa for such a wonderful gift!
