Though we travel the world over to find beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not.

A couple of weeks ago our yard was crawling with dragonflies. I have always loved them so I grabbed my camera and tried to get a picture of one. The picture was good but I thought it would be more fun to use the image to challenge myself to create more art from it. The first image is the original photo, the second is the photo layered over other images of texture and plants, the third is a painting with acrylic inks, soft body acrylics, and watercolors on claybord, and the last one is a simple watercolor.
