dragonflies and lily pads

penelope dullaghan - dragonflies and lily pads We were lucky enough to migrate south for spring break this year - a brief interlude to the chilly temperatures here in the midwest. One morning during our trip we visited a swamp in the everglades where we walked a boardwalk through thick vines and watery trees. We came out into a clearing that was full of lily pads and dragonflies (and gators) and sunshine. It was beautiful and felt so open.

When we came home I needed to get started on the artwork I was donating to Veda's school fund raiser. Inspired by that little hike, I set to work and created this piece. I love how it turned out and hope it'll bring in good bids for the school. :)
