"Dragonfly" original mixed media © Saundra Lane Galloway

A wonderful friend of mine who just so happens to also be my daughter's mother-in-law is coming to town later this week and is also bringing my most wonderful daughter and future mother of my grandchild as well.  YEA! In fact there is a whole passle of family coming and we are thrilled!

My most wonderful friend and future co grandmother absolutely LOVES dragonflies.  WOW...the dragonfly is not a thing I have ever thought of painting...they are so tiny...their wings are so transparent...they are so hard to catch still enough to photograph...so I fudged and did some research into dragonflies and their habitats...THAT brought another dilemma as they usually sort of fade into the foliage they hang around...so this was a challenge from the get go...


I wanted to do this in my "new" style...and so it was going to be a little pattern challenging from the get go.  In the end I found it pleasant to play with this...and now it is done...

I am excited that next will be the second installment of a baby animal for my daughter's nursery.  I am honored that she asked me to do a series for our little someone...busy times!  FUN times!

HAPPY CREATING!!

Wow is right! I LOVE dragonflies also. In fact one of my email addresses is "aoitombo" at gmail which translates to blue dragonfly in Japanese. Love this painting!

Thanks Sheila...coming from a dragonfly lover that is a relief and a great compliment! I love what they stand for in some cultures...:)
