"Mani's Butterfly Over Mount Shasta"
Mountain tops are great for flying kites and Mount Shasta certainly is no exception. My friend Mani stopped by in September, 2014 and we went to the top so she could fly her butterfly while I took photos. This is a composite of two or three of those. One thing about the top of Mount Shasta, there are spectacular views where you can see forever. That coupled with the fun and imagery of the Butterfly, especially for a child of the '60's like me, with CSNY's "Woodstock" lyric "And I dreamed I saw the bombers jet planes riding shotgun in the sky,
turning into Butterflies above our nation." Just couldn't resist this one. It also gave me an opportunity to paint some of the rock formations on top of Mount Shasta that I've never painted, in the foreground. These are a couple of smaller ones but I stayed away from the big labryinth on top of the Sacred Mount.
