‘Bouquet of buds that blossom in time; the bursting petals of a beautiful mind.
Golden dust upon winds does fly; pollinating creation of dreams in sky.
Dripping sweet nectar upon pristine bristle; painting flower, thorn and thistle.
Strokes the page once white as snow, watching the coloured garden grow.
Nurtured, cared for, bed of flower; patiently creating for many and hour.
Upon such beauty those wings do kiss; fluttering true to artist’s bliss.
A single butterfly, a thousand dreams; spreading vision in sun’s shining beams.
True genius; wondrous magician. Soul so bound by artist tradition.
My hero’s, idol’s, teacher’s of art. Your enchanting power I take deep to heart.
I look to you, your magic flying higher; born to create, to conjure…
Well I’ve been doing a lot of presents for my wonderful friends on DeviantArt recently, and I thought that it would be a nice idea to come up with something dedicated to all of the incredible artists here that I look up to
I was drawing a picture of my fursona fenris, trying to come up with a concept for the piece and thus the usual poem to go with it, when I suddenly started thinking about metaphors and symbols. For some reason an image of a butterfly entered my mind, and I really liked the idea of using this as my metaphorical figure. Since I wanted this piece to be for all of the artists who inspire me, I came up with using the butterfly to represent their artistic power and ‘magic’ that captures and lifts me in it’s wings :3
As always, I hope you like it. And to all of the amazing artists here, thank you for being so incredible and talented. The world is really a more beautiful place with you in it ^^
Some of the astounding people here who inspire and amaze me…
