The short tale of the butterfly

Is it the first time you see a butterfly wearing a watch ?
His life is ephemeral, he needs to fly farther possible,
it doesn't matter much whether he falls flat on the ground for his last fluttering.
But, obsessed by the time who elapses, this little while which remains
He cant neither abandon this heavy watch, nor stop to check it;
That's why, his fly is irregular...

La ptite histoire du papillon

Est-ce la premiere fois que vous voyez un papillon avec une montre ?
Sa vie est ephemere, il lui faut pourtant voler le plus loin possible,
Peu importe s'il tombe de haut au dernier battement d'ailes.
Mais, obsedé par le temps qui passe, ce peu qu'il lui reste,
Il ne peut abandonner cette lourde montre, ni cesser de la regarder;
Voila pourquoi son vol est irregulier...

Très belle réalisation, les couleurs sont magnifiques l'idée est bonne et pour finir l'histoire est sympathique.

Mais là revient la question Ce papillon est il esclave du temps?
Et nous même le sommes nous comme ce papillons bien que nous ne soyons pas éphémère!

It is amazing how you are able to make a simple idea, like the butterfly's irregular fly- into something so amazing as this. I adore the idea of living things carrying a watch on them, because there's truth behind that. We can't look at it and we can't take it off, like the butterfly. And the butterfly, such an ephemeral being, like you said, has no real sense in life as we see it. It can only fly... and fly some more.

I won't essay on the painting technique, because ALL of your images have an astounding climate, they ALL make my flesh creep and I seriously love them all. I don't have enough experience or knowledge about painting, so I don't think I can really say too much about it... but I am always supportive of your art. Congratulations on your vivid imagination.
