The Beauty of Letting Go

Sarah Smith's avatar Sarah Smith

This piece is of a young girl dancing down the street. As she reaches out her arm, the tip of her finger sparks an eruption of colorful butterflies scattering off into the sky. This aims to depict the innocence of freedom and the vulnerable ability of expression and being yourself. As the birds leave it expresses the risks of entering into the unknown; forever altering you in a way where you cannot come back in the same form in which you left. Although this path may be scary, you never know the true beauty that can come from it unless you reach out and embrace it. It shows the freedom of taking this fear of the unknown and letting it go in order to unvail the beauty of life.
