4x6 oil on canvas! Dragonflies carry messages that deal with deeper thought - and they ask that we pay attention to our deeper thoughts and desires -- maybe that is why this dragonfly, "Fire" is my favorite one so far!

I love the Dragonfly symbolism because it crosses and combines -- change. They are often represented in Japanese paintings representing new light and joy. They are a symbol of self that comes with maturity. Their colors reflect and refract the power of light. As a result, they are associated with color magic (the illusion of causing others only to see what you wish) and other mysticism. Dragonflies are reminders to see through illusions and allow your own light to shine in a new vision.
The size is 5"x7" oil on canvas. Thanks for looking!
