Over the years, I’ve found there have been a few things I’ve been asked to paint often. One of these is a dragonfly. There is no doubt, these little bugs are beautiful. They come in so many colours and their wings are beyond description. It’s like a mystery figuring out how to paint them too!
Almost always, there is a story or significance behind why someone is drawn to these creatures or why one of my dragonfly paintings catches someone’s eye. This is what I am interested in. I’d like to hear your dragonfly tale. Here’s mine:
My wedding ceremony was on the stone patio at my family’s cottage by the lake. It had rained earlier,but it turned into a beautiful day. Family was gathered around on the grass surrounding the patio. Immediately after the ceremony, what seemed like hundreds of dragonflies appeared. One of our guests even thought that we had purposely released dragonflies for dramatic effect!
