"What gives a butterfly the courage to spread its vulnerable wings? How do we harness our own courage to speak out, to reach out, to lift someone up? At what point do we decide to be that person? At what point do we decide to fly? Have we waited too long already?" Elisabeth Ladwig

"May Timid Wings Awaken" presents a surreal and whimsical scene in which a human figure stands in a field with their head obscured by a giant monarch butterfly. The figure is wearing a flowing black dress which has butterfly wing patterns on its lining. Their bare feet are delicately placed on the grass, hinting at a connection with nature. In the background, a serene pasture unfolds with several animals grazing on a hill dotted with trees and dandelions. Additional monarch butterflies are seen flying in the sky, complementing the theme of the central figure. The overall color palette is soft with pastel-like qualities, adding to the dreamy, ethereal atmosphere of the composition.
