Thinking that I might find some interesting butterflies at our local botanical gardens before summer is over, I stopped by there one afternoon on the way home from the studio. I hadn't visited the gardens all summer and I was anxious to see what I would find! It was a real challenge to photograph anything that day as the butterflies were very active but I found these Buckeyes resting now and then. So I designed this painting from some of them with some flowers I saw. Plus I added a little of my imagination and voila!
