You know, it snowed again today...only two inches, but honestly I'm getting a bit "over" the snow. I have some serious spring fever and decided why not make a "quilt" filled with birds, flowers, butterflies and other lovely springy things?
I decided to paint one. But now that I have it all drawn in I am not sure how to paint it...
I was messing around with some watercolor, photographed it and printed it. Then I just didn't know where to go from there... I used to paint a lot of dragonfly art for friends, but haven't for a long time.... so here is a little dragon fly, hovering around in the night sky.
We have enormous dragonflies here in Connecticut. My cat Lucy loves to lie low in the grass and wait for them to buzz by her. They seem to see her and come hover in for an inspection and then she jumps and catches them in her paws. I run up and make her release them, and they fly away a bit bent but otherwise alive! Too funny!
