BLUE ILLUSIONS - Dragonfly - mixed media on paper - 8 x 10

Lately, I have been inspired to explore creative new ways to design the dragonfly.  In this piece, the meaning of Dragonfly is highlighted through the use of words, colors, transparencies and light.  This mixed media art was created using ink, acrylics and charcoal on paper.
The notes within the drawing are written partially in mirror image similar to how Da Vinci included notes in his art. It reads…
”Life is never quite the way it appears, but is always filled with light and color. Dragonfly can help you see through your illusions and thus allow your own light to shine forth. Dragonfly brings out brightness of transformation and the wonder of colorful new vision.”
To purchase, please contact me. To see more original paintings or dragonfly art, please visit 5 element studios.

Yellow Lab Oil Painting

Oil on Canvas

This was one of my most recent commissions of,  Little Katie. I was fortunate enough to have know this beautiful yellow lab which, made painting her a little bit easier. I purposely left a lot of space in the back ground to give it a contemporary feel.  One of my favorite parts of this painting are Katie's eyes, nose and mouth. My intent was to highlight her face since she was such an expressive dog!
