Happiness is like a Butterfly ...

This Artist Trading Card (ATC) was inspired by an old John Player cigarette card.

The background image is by Glenda Waterworth, but together with the original butterfly image, has been digitally altered.

The full quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne is just wonderful.

"Happiness is like a butterfly which,
when pursued, 
is always beyond our grasp,
but, if you will sit down quietly,
may alight upon you."

This last photo shows the original butterfly, the inspiration for this ATC.
