What's Doing Wednesday? Butterfly in Pocket Collage Aceo

Collage ACEO
The idea of living in a pocket, something so fragile as a butterfly, seems to me, fictional.

This is like a dream, or a child's wish, only to find that they've killed the thing they wanted to keep close. Fortunately, this is my aceo dream, so the butterfly survives!  It's resting on the quilt at the moment. 

This also looks like a mermaid's tail in a sea of blue waves with whitecaps and seaspray.  Do you see different stories in your work?

ETA:  I've just added this aceo to the theme week on Inspiration Avenue  after reading about the theme on Imgirl  blog.  Wings is the theme, why not add yours?

The play with fragility in this small piece has me thinking, too. Thanks!

Gracey, thanks- it's like a sweet dream, all that blue pulls me in.

Janet, thank you- been working with broken wings now and again.

This is cute! Lovely colors, too. In the realm of imagination, all things are possible...and dark and light are merely choices ;) Kathryn

New End Studio said...

Thanks Kathryn! Possibilities, yes, I mostly agree.

Tammy said...

So pretty and I love the thought of the wings being a mermaids tail. Very clever.

This is beautiful! I love the colours, textures and composition - gorgeous. It has a peaceful positive feel to it that I like. And I like the way it could be a mermaids tail as well as a butterfly in a pocket.

I'm very glad you joined in with the IA theme of 'Wings' - it is great to have you share your art with us. Good to 'meet' you & discover your art.

Kat :-)

Waving to say Hi to Tammy and Kat!
Thanks so much for stopping by and your thoughtful comments. I'm so glad that you enjoyed this little project. I love the water and what it brings to us.

This is my first time visiting your blog and I am taken by how your mind works. It's always good when the butterfly lives or the mermaid sails off into the sunset. It is a beautiful choice for IA's challenge this week.

Hi Bleubeard and Elizabeth! Thanks for visiting, and for your appreciation- I like to create the happy ending, if only on paper. Hope you visit again. New End Studio

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Thanks for pointing out the mermaids tale and providing a happy ending for your butterfly- I love the possibilities of BOTH interpretations! Beautiful ACEO!

Barbara said...

Beautiful, so fragile...

Amanda said...

I came over from Inspiration Avenue and love your entry. I really like the design of your piece. And I see both ways you have described the picture. I have found that I may start to create a project and then when I am putting it together it changes into something else. The creative muse is fun to play with.

I love the way the warm color of the wings contrasts with the blues. I can definitely imagine the wings to be a mermaid's tail! Thanks for playing at Inspiration Avenue this week ~ hope to see you again!

Fragile & Fabulous - wonderful :) I think Inspiration Avenue looks great too :) I might join in, we can all do with a little inspiration after all & I loved the 'Wing' collection :)
