For some reason I had a fascination with dragonflies during the period when I did this painting. Just a big fixation on them, and I was seeing them everywhere! I just had to use them somehow in a painting...and being as I also liked mythical dragons, I got to thinking what a dragon-dragonfly hybrid would look like. He'd be small, and probably very iridescent, and awful cute! And so DragonFly was born. The Celtic maid on a riverbank tempting the wee dragonfly to land, with lots of knots to frame them!
