The Atlas Of Dreams - Color Plate 87 by 

This strange spiky desert tree seems to be attracting more than the usual number of butterflies.

“Color Plate 87” combines a photograph from stock.xchng member Dany de Bruyne with a “spin art painting” created by my father, Gus Maier.

“The Atlas Of Dreams” is an ongoing project started in 1999. Each plate is composed of several different images combined to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Source images include historic engravings, NASA photos of space and the Earth’s surface, abstract images, the artwork of my father: Gus Maier, and of course my own artwork – recycled and reused. Watch out for stray butterflies, fish, snakes, and other animals…
