Besparmak Butterfly – Art Every Day Month November 8

When I create art, I just browse among my photos to see what attracts my attention and, today, it was a photo I took recently of the Besparmak

Mountains which run parallel to the coast on the north side of the island. Where I live, I’m five minutes from the Mediterranean in front of our apartment, and five-tend minutes from the Besparmaks behind me. The name, by the way comes from “bes” meaning “five” and “parmak” meaning finger, which in turn comes from a big peak on the range called “Five Finger Mountain”.

I fiddled with the original photo then superimposed an image of a crystal butterfly from a mandala I created when I lived in Boonah, Queensland. I love mountains and these have been transformative for me, I’m very happy here and entranced with digital and surreal art, so thought a butterfly was appropriate as a symbol of transformation.
