LIVING BEYOND BREAST CANCER (LBBC) has connected
countless people to the resources they need to transform the experience of a diagnosis into a journey of support, friendship and inspiration.
I'm very happy to share this new collection from the White House Black Market website with you my dear friends! Being a part of this creative collaboration for a good cause means a lot to me.  To translate ideas is magic.  It takes so long to make an easy flowing painting, to make sure the painting is done well. But when you add meaning to your work it is worth every minute! I would like to share with you more about what is the meaning behind these creations.  The butterfly is very symbolic. The spiritual meaning of the butterfly is their ability to transcend through a process (metamorphosis). The butterfly embraces the changes of her body, her power of transformation, shape shifting and soul evolution. The butterfly metaphorically asks us to accept the changes in our lives to keep our faith through these life altering transitions. The butterfly relates very powerfully as a symbol of a woman going from breast cancer diagnosis to treatment and on to recovery.  In my design the butterflies are transforming from the black (dark time) and to a beautiful pink one.
" perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness and become something beautiful."
One quote really inspired and resonated with me and WHBM: " Just when the butterfly thought the world is over, it become a beautiful butterfly".  
I'm honored to be a part of this awareness and fundraising effort and also to be invited to the Butterfly Ball, the annual black-tie gala this October in Philadelphia. The Butterfly Ball is LBBC's most important fundraising event of the year. I hope to share more about this wonderful event with you soon!  Butterfly themed paintings and other pieces in my collection can viewed and purchased at my store on Etsy. For the month of October I am offering a 10% discount on all items purchased from my Lana'sArt ETSY site.  Just enter coupon code "BUTTERFLY" to get your discount during direct checkout. With Love, Lana

  12. Not only such beautiful designs of Pink Butterflys in your collection, but a beautiful, thoughtful analogy of Breast Cancer with the evolving changes in the Butterfly - "The butterfly embraces the changes of her body, her power of transformation, shape shifting and soul evolution. The butterfly metaphorically asks us to accept the changes in our lives to keep our faith through these life altering transitions". Such a wonderful cause to support- thank you!

  13. I just got my WHBM Catalogue - they showcased a "Butterfly Tray" for their Breast Cancer Awareness. Was this also your design - it is similar to your beautiful Butterfly's on the scarfs and other items.

  14. I've been to events at other places, but this was my first time in here. Great event venues. Food was good and seating was very comfortable. Also, very good view from where I sat. This is such a cool venue and the atmosphere was equally amazing.
