A beautiful acrylic painting on a natural canvas panel which has been left bare in places to give an extra dimension and texture. Created using a very fine brush to achieve the detailing and shadows. The butterfly and hair are created using ink and calligraphy nibs.
"Once Aisling dreamt she was a butterfly, a butterfly flitting and fluttering around, happy with herself and doing as she pleased. She was unaware that she was Aisling. Suddenly she woke up and there she was, solid and unmistakable Aisling. But she didn't know if she was Aisling who had dreamt of being a butterfly, or now a butterfly dreaming she was Aisling. Between Aisling and a butterfly there must be some distinction! This is called the Transformation of Things." Zhuangzi
