Don't pay any attention to the word above the picture, it is crap. And the picture is old and yellowed, but I liked the work I did so I thought I would post it. The image is about 5 x 8. Comments welcome.

What word???? Where????? I see no word:D :D
Really lovely Dragonfly Sharon.....that's so funny.... I took the dogs for a walk today and Damselflies (sort of small dragonflies) were flying out of the grass just in front of me. I thought it would be a nice idea to try and draw them but I don't think I could do as good a job as you have:rolleyes: :D :clap: :clap:

Thanks carolee. They are very interesting. Had one bite me once. Fortunatly it was on a tough piece of my finger so it didn't hurt. He was beautiful and bright blue, down in Florida by the Everglades. He would have made a beautiful pin.

Sharon,

I love it... I can see the delicate ornamental beauty in this picture that you bring to your "letters" and other work.

Very nice as always... if you have more like this... please post it :)


Cheers,

Hi Sharon :D Beautiful !! It is a very jewel-like art nouveau style of design and rendered wonderfully. Dragonflys are such beautiful creatures! :D My absolute favourite of the insect world.

Well Done! I look forward to your next one.


Cheers Dahzl :D
