River West Artworks
Original Art, Artisan Works and Photographs by Jan Jenkins and Brian Erickson


The butterfly, a symbol of transformation, survives an impressive process of metamorphosis. She requires us to accept the changes in our lives as naturally as she does. Unquestionably she embraces the changes her environment and body undergoes, and she beckons us to do the same, to keep our faith as we undergo transitions and changes in our own lives. The colors I have used in this artwork speak to awakening and learning (yellow-green), clarity and enlightment (yellow), intuition and dreams (violet), creativity and vision (red-violet), integral to the voyage of transformation and rebirth.
