Butterflies at Inspiration Avenue

The Butterfly Garland
Butterflies under the sea?
But of course! Where did you think butterflies come from?
Besides from caterpillars, that is. 
It's like the old chicken and the egg puzzle. 
Which came first, the caterpillar or the butterfly?

Well, mermaids are in charge of gathering the lost butterflies
and making sure they return to land to lay the eggs,
that will become the caterpillars, 
that will become . . . now you understand.
Without the mermaids' help, there would be many less butterflies.
Of course the mermaids can't accomplish this without a little assistance.
They enlist their sea creature friends to pitch in from time to time :)

Be sure to head over to Inspiration Avenue on Sunday
to see the Gallery of Butterflies.
I believe we have a record number of entries this week.
"Butterflies" is a subject that speaks to the creative soul!


  1. Mermaids and butterflies and seahorses and all things magical...that's what Magpie's are made of♥♥♥

  2. Not sure how I missed this, but it is wonderful. Truly great fantasy piece that could only have come from a person who has magic in her art!

  3. Love your whimsical butterfly piece! I had no idea of the true origin of butterflies :)

  4. SOOOO pretty! Lovely background too, xo

  5. I'm not sure why but the idea of butterflies being sea cretaures somehow kind of fits them perfectly! Beautiful, quirky, whimsical artwork. And I love the little seahorse! :)

  6. Love your new look blog! It's been a while since I've visited and it all looks wonderful. This butterfly piece is truly magical. xx
