DO NOT BE CONFORMED

This is one of the canvases I started yesterday. You can zoom in to see the Scripture. It is a good one---one of my favorites. In most of my paintings you will see a butterfly. Butterflies symbolize metamorphosis and in the original Greek language of the early Bible, the word for "transform"in this Scripture is the same as our English word for metamorphosis. I am not a Bible scholar but I do know this. That's why you will see butterflies in my paintings---for transformation. So---be transformed!

Hey.... it's my birthday...:) I have transformed into another year old.
