A monarch butterfly
for Bill's book.
Corel Painter has a neat-o mirror effect brush
to speed things along.
around the edges loosens up the symmetry.
My procrastinations on this project have weighed on me.
I dreamt I was in my childhood's California kitchen
(with a childish Mickey Rooney!)
looking out on branches covered with these butterflies.
There are monarch butterflies there, too.
They are celebrated in pageants along the coast
and swarm by the thousands in Mexico.
