Butterflies at the VIC

This June on our vacation we got to stop by and see a special friend of ours we met through the Chinook Camping Club, Porgy Smith. We had such a wonderful time! She took me to the Adirondack Visitor Center at Paul Smith's, NY. I took pictures in their butterfly house and enjoyed the current art show at the center. When I got home I created this encaustic as a remembrance of my great visit.
