Right after his surprise proposal to girlfriend Ellen Adarna last March 31, Derek Ramsay gave his fiancee a one-of-a-kind gift to commemorate the occasion. The 44-year-old actor commissioned a local artist to create a mixed media artwork for Ellen, which she loved.

On artist Vien Valencia’s Instagram account, she shared the story behind the 5 x 4 feet artwork called “Exodus”, made of butterflies, oil, and house paint on canvas. 


“Last March, Derek Ramsay @ramsayderek07 commissioned me to do a meaningful piece dedicated to his marriage proposal, the title of this work is "Exodus." It's a group of various species of actual butterflies against a black surface. Exodus literally means "the road out." I wanted to come up with something about setting free.

"Also, they are a battle with the idea of death. An average butterfly species has a life expectancy of about two days, and live ten days at the most. No adult butterfly can live more than a year. Once you realize you're not gonna be around forever, I think that's what makes life so magical. One day you'll eat your last meal, smell your last flower, hug your dog for the very last time, you might not know it's the last time right? Treasure the few years you've got because that's all there is,” she shared in her post.
