This would be a Supernova Butterfly.
By Art Child
This could be a butterfly collected, from earth, by an investigative race from outer space.
.. and now for an alien butterfly.

Oh how I love – just love that garage door. Reminds me of a deep space picture. Great find, Resa!!!!
Hmm, thinking of your headers, I can see why you like the first one.
It is a very amazing painting. It took me awhile, staring at it, to see the butterfly.
U love that door!
Which one is your fave?
Really feeling this galactic sci-fi work of art is spectacular. Automatically one of my favorites.
They are are really something, each in their own way. It seems that this was the summer of butterflies in alleys, so I extra love different takes on the theme.
That’s a pretty cool garage door.
All 3 are! Supernova is my fave!
Wow! Wild, colorful and beautiful.
The entire 1 block of alley is painted, both sides, butterfly/nature theme and it looks amazing. The alley is transformed!
Do you want to try a 360º panorama?
Yeah! I only have an IPhone camera, Google Photos and IPhoto in my computer.
If you do 12 to 13 over lapping photos in portrait orientation, I can put them in a 360º panorama and create a 360º virtual tour of the painted block. Start a 12:00, snap a photo. Holding your camera at the same level, turn your body and camera to 1:00 and snap another photo. Continue until you are back to 12:00. Send me the photos and I’ll put it all together for you. It would be fun.
WoW! That sounds great. I just need to get back to that alley, or who knows, I may find another one, or revisit a different alley. There are several painted alleys in the city… maybe more…
So portrait orientation is? when I hold the IPhone camera up & down… vertical, or sideways, horizontal? I’m thinking up & down.
Portrait is vertical (up & down). Sideways is called “landscape” orientation.
Wonderful! Full of color and life, and very spacy.
These garage doors along an alley make a wonderful outdoor art gallery!
That is so fantabulous, Sorceress!!
I want one!
Me too, Thunder, but I don’t have a garage. However, soon, a surprise coming! I have a wall!
Wow!!! What color and beauty. I love it. Just fabulous. I can only wonder what it’s like in person. Beautiful.
The entire alley for 1 block, both sides is painted. It’s a joy standing in the alley! It’s an art gallery!
Just to be controversial, but… looks more like a moth to me.
Of course it does. I’m only surprised you didn’t accuse it of being a dragonfly.
It’s a moth!
Awesome Resa! That is definitely sonic, the garage door is amazing, can you imagine living across the street from that, seeing it every morning. It’s so beautiful, the entire artwork is stunning. Thank you Resa, love this! ❤
You should see the entire alley! It is completely painted, both sides for an entire block. It’s spectacular! ❤
So, I spent from noon 'til now working on the new Art Gown. So much yet, to do. However, it's off to an excellent start. Sewing by hand is very time consuming, but very Zen. I'm so relaxed!!
That sounds fabulous! Enjoy your Zen! xoxo
xoxo, yeah! I’m doing a really different drape. If this works out, I’ll think I’m genius. I’ve been doing hand pricked curved tucks from under the bust to the centre back an hour a day for a week.
This is because I’m attempting a Tango feel, on a Judy.
Of course after the black under gown is done, the red velvet is up!
I am so excited about this gown. I can’t wait!
Me too! Still, lots of sewing!I want to make some frothy lace… flowers… bursts… I’m not sure. I need the velvet to be working in, then I’ll go for it. You had also mentioned silver… black, red and silver. I have a slew of vintage silver buttons someone gave me. They could do for flower or burst centres. We will see!
That sounds heavenly Resa, it’s going to be stunning!
If there is a garage sale…I would buy the door…:) nice one!
Hahaha!!! Fab comment!
These are marvelous, Resa. You amaze me by finding all these beautiful murals. I love the “butterfly supernova.” 😀 Hugs on the wing!
Lots of street art here in Toronto! Wing Hugs back at ya!! 😀
Supernova Butterfly…. I think the artist would agree! Beautiful butterflies, Resa!!!! Hera sends her hugs [and so do I!] xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Butterflies are amazing creatures of earth. Ask Hera! She knows about the beauty of nature!
They are indeed and Hera knows, you’re right and she loves watching them! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
For me, butterflies symbolize transitions into the unknown, of becoming enhanced because of our experiences, our learning. These doors were meant to be butterflies. One of my most favourite poems about butterflies is “Butterfly Laughter” by Katherine Mansfield:
In the middle of our porridge plates
There was a blue butterfly painted
And each morning we tried who should reach the
Then the Grandmother said: “Do not eat the poor
That made us laugh.
Always she said it and always it started us laughing.
It seemed such a sweet little joke.
I was certain that one fine morning
The butterfly would fly out of our plates,
Laughing the teeniest laugh in the world,
And perch on the Grandmother’s lap.
What a wonderful tale, Rebecca!
You really are well read, and very thoughtful. I just adore this.
Thank you for taking the time to write this out!
Wow! Mighty butterflies!
That first butterfly is simply epic! The second is not to be sniffed at either. Love the droid (with butterfly) Thank you for sharing :)x
I adore the abstract best, too! 😀 x
