Illustration Friday Post: Renewal

One of my new year's resolutions (I
have many) is to do as many of the
Illustration Friday prompts as I can.
I love the challenge of them!

This week's challenge is "RENEWAL",
and when I saw the word, I instantly thought of butterflies. I also happened to have this lovely vintage image in my collection of favourite images, and it lent itself perfectly to the theme.

All I needed was a quote, so when I found this quotation from the actress Lynn Redgrave, I knew that I was ready to go!

Great page. The quote is a good one. I'm thinking I am in a cocoon right now waiting, waiting till I can move to California. No plans to move currently but I want to be there so I am in a cocoon, wrapping myself up in art and internet friends until then.
