Diane Barton

Artist Statement:

Butterflies hold a special meaning for Diane. They are beautiful in color and graceful in flight. A butterfly starts its cycle of life in a cocoon and over time, is transformed into one of nature’s most beautiful beings. The butterfly represents different stages of life and how we as people move from one stage of life to another, with each stage having a unique purpose. The swans represent Diane and her daughters. They glide over the water with a calm about them that brings us back to nature and all it offers us. Once again, nature provides the setting for all of us to capture and enjoy as we make our way through good times and bad times. These beautiful creatures can only make you smile and say, “thanks”.
