Rebirth with the Butterfly

It’s time to celebrate.  Easter is the time for rebirth.  Spring is here and butterflies are in the air.
I love this Hermes ad. What a beautiful butterfly!

I’ve saved this Traditional Home article from November 2010 as reference because I’m so taken with Carin Gerard‘s artwork of Nature.

Her extraordinary realism and detailed trompe l’oeil style remind me of Mark Leithauser’s artwork, who’s work I really admire.

If you’d like to see more butterfly art, flit on over to Casart coverings, where butterflies are featured this week.

Happy Easter Season!
