Is it Possible to Become Friends with a Butterfly?

On a trip to Iguazu Falls on the Argentina side, we rode a train and then hiked walking trails to the famous Devil's Throat. Along the way, friendly butterflies filled the air, and often landed on our hats, sleeves and backpacks. They were everywhere! This painting shows some of the magic I felt being surrounded by butterflies.

The title for the painting is text taken from the English translation of Haruki Murakami's book, "1Q84", which my friend Gemi lent me to read. I'm about a third of the way through, finding lots more inspiration along the way. If you create, what inspires you? What books are you reading?
