James Jean signed my “Vanity” print which came in a copy of Kindling, a collection of his brilliant artwork.

Chose this over the other posters, because I love how the painting depicts a woman who is beautifying herself in front of a mirror. I don’t know what the butterflies on the head represent but Hub has an interesting interpretation.

He says its because butterflies don’t live very long. Their beauty is real but fleeting. Just like someone’s looks. It will eventually fade when one becomes wrinkly with age. Physical beauty is only temporary.

Makes sense.
