Very nice, I love the words, they could apply to anyone, or anything that aspires to be better. The picture is great also.

The words are inspirational and the image is beautiful! I love the little stamped flowers in the background. TGhe, along with the brushstrokes of the blue, add a sense of movement behind the wongs. Lovely!

I really like this a lot. I have a suggestion, I think you don't need the words around the wings even though it's a great quote. I don't think the words are really adding anything. Besides that, it's very beautiful and you obviously have real talent. Well done!

The line and loose brushtrokes flutter like a butterfly. Ahhhhh. I like this a lot.
