While painting in my makeshift camping studio, I was playing around with the shadow pattern of the bush in front of me that was displayed on my canvas. As I added & subtracted color & form, butterflies began to emerge. Aha! THIS is where they go! An art show visitor had mentioned the book titled “Where Do the Butterflies Go?” a couple of years ago and the idea always intrigued me. They finally showed me their hiding places.
