|"Where Dragonflies Play" (oil, 12" x 9")|
At the request of a client, I did a much larger version of the same painting. When a painting is blown up, I often feel that something gets lost in the translation. The charm and suggestiveness of a small painting become sacrificed in favor of details. I was determined that it should not happen with this commission work. I came up with the title first and stuck to it, keeping it "dreamy" and "soft-edged." What do you think of the new painting?
