Just by reading the title of this painting, “Emergence from Chrysalis” you start to grasp what I was trying to represent. In case you do not know, “Chrysalis” is the stage when the moth or butterfly undergoes it transformation into adult hood. Although we are not enwrapped in a cocoon there are different stages in our lives when we also undergo growth and transformation. Whether it be physical, mental, personal or a slew of other ways we grow and learn. Through our lives we will change not only once but many times over and it is up to us to make that change turn into something beautiful and delicate. The butterfly symbolizes this idea of becoming more brilliant than we once were not only individually but also as a family, society and ultimately as a species.
