A Quote of the Day Butterflies & Chinese Goddesses Collide Thanks to Sheryl Sandberg's Newest Book

This Monday's post will be a little more personal than others so buckle up. 

Quote of the day "When We are no longer able to change a situation we are challenged to change ourselves." Victor Frank

I read this quote this morning in an article with Sheryl Sandberg about her new book Option B. (Nothing like delaying a Monday Blogs post until Monday afternoon). The article was amazing but the quote she used from Victor Frank hit me in the solar plexus. Like all artists, I knew I had to make it mine.

I have been working on a series of Chinese Goddess illustrations for me daughter, and last night I had been playing with my illustration of Kwan Yin, the Chinese goddess of mercy and compassion. I had been messing with the original illustration with an overlay of butterflies.

As I sat letting the quote sink in after I have kept making plans for my future that my body and health continually alter I knew the perfect way to show what this quote meant to me would be to layer it on top of the goddess of compassion surrounded by the ultimate in change acceptance, the butterfly.
