Dragonfly paintings

I finished two dragon fly paintings and took them to the framer today. A sneak preview of one of them is on the left.

I tried to be a little more free form and use less black line. I wanted to try for a colorful yet airy, light feeling. I wanted to work with the feeling I had while walking in the jungle in Costa Rica and seeing giant blue butterflies and dragonflies. Not sure if I achieved what I was looking for but I'm happy with the way they turned out. I might do more paintings with this dragon fly theme and see what other things I can do with them. I'll have them in the December show at the Tumalo Art Co. gallery.
