About the painting
This painting expresses the strength and fighting spirit and generosity that a woman has and the deep and passionate love she harbors for a man against all odds. The apple represents the forbidden fruit that he offers her as much as it symbolizes the unbridled creativity and joy of life that they share. The butterflies in the orange sun symbolize the love and intoxicating sensuality that flow freely between the two of them. There are two butterflies, which means her love is answered by his love. She allows herself to relax in his embrace, enjoying his trusting warmth and kindness and the unconditional faith he has in her.
