A Hero A Rose

By: Megan Leigh Kasper ~ Opulent Art


“Butterflies can’t see their wings, so they can’t see how truly beautiful they are but others can.

Humans are like that too.”

I heard this quote & thought, I want people to know & believe they truly have wings & they are beautiful, so I started painting them.

This is my painting for 2022 & I had lots of thoughts & feelings of painting this piece, yes more than usual which means tons of emotions :) A rose came to mind when I was at my sketch journal so I incorporated it into the doodle, why not have a rose blossoming within the wing itself.

As I was painting it it came back to me about how I had done a rose art piece when I was in a color theory class, where the teacher assigned us to do a complementary color piece we’d all have to title: Hero vs. Villain, & I came up with a rose & thorns. Meaning each one of us have it in us to be able to be a hero or a villain, just like a rose has both beauty that protects the new, vulnerable life within itself, dying to have the seeds be planted & grow OR choice to use our thorns to protect ourselves, to prick, hurt & cut others away from anything of ourselves. The thorns themselves don’t produce life or redemption but just cause hurt & pain.

So this piece is a continuation of it, a celebration of those who are Heroes that have chosen the beauty over the thorns & have a cocoon of gold they can have apart of their live’s legacy.

You are the fragrance giver, the color blooming after the winter season & won’t give up on beauty no matter the circumstances, YOU ARE A HERO!
