Defrauded I a Butterfly,
The Rightful Heir..For Thee..
I started my new painting, Defrauded I a Butterfly, after I read this poem. Not that I was trying to put in paint what Emily Dickinson tried to express through words! Its just that sometime after reading something beautiful and touching I have this irresistible desire to put those words in my work.... I wove the text around in the painting with different mediums, including stencils and written words. I think I will make this a series where I will chose different poems by Dickinson and make them a part of my paintings! Will keep you posted on how it goes!
