"The wind and the dragonfly"

"The wind and the dragonfly"
11" x 9"
acrylic on canvas paper

 So I had a sudden urge to paint in bright colors and of course acrylics are always the best for vivid color. This was also a practice in painting faces, which faces or figures have always been a challenge for me to do. This painting was inspired by a photograph taken of myself a few years ago - I always loved that it captured the energy of wind. The dragonflies came as an afterthought. During the couple days I painted on this I kept seeing dragonflies everywhere, so in they went!
