Becky by KatePowellArt Becky by KatePowellArt
A drawing I did for Becky Thompson for her birthday. I'm not sure if she'd particularly want a drawing of herself as a present, but I wanted it to help her come to terms with how beautiful she is. I want to show her that the way she perceives herself isn’t the be all and end all, and that those around her find her endlessly fantastic and serene. For me, butterflies represent hope, life, and prosperity, and I believe Becky has a fantastic future ahead of her, she is an incredible person and I will love her forever.

I like the meaning behind the picture. I have been hospitalized for self-harm as well. My outlet was art so I hope she gets comfort from your drawing.

I don't really believe in "the power" of symbolism but did you know what else butterflies represent? Like a light headed state of mind where one tries to escape reality and consciousness. It's often used as a symbol of mind control. Well, you should research it yourself, it might interest you since you love them so much.

Awww, this is really beautiful and touching.
First of all, you can immediately notice that you're incredibly talented. The hair and the eyes are incredibly realistic and well-drawn! The butterflies are simply perfect and gorgeous.
Second, it's touching that you do such a sweet thing for a friend in need. If it helps, you can tell her that I find her very beautiful. She looks like an angel with those blonde hairs and blue eyes :) I hope she gets well soon!
Great job!!!
