Inspired by the lovely butterflies in this creation:

On Mystic Pond
by Stormey

starting with this image

and created entirely using GIMP v2.8. Title references the lyrics of this CSN&Y song:

“And I dreamed I saw the bomber jet planes riding shotgun in the sky
Turning into butterflies above our nation.

We are stardust, we are golden
We are caught in the devil’s bargain,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden."

    Very cool work David.

  • Thank you, Bunny!! It was very tedious repainting all the little berries, but the varied colors are supposed to explain the special coloring of the butterflies, along with the random hues in the sunlight…I got so tired after all the manipulation I forgot to write the explanation :o)))
