I'm not a fan of insects of any type, so painting this made me a little itchy :-) My Daughter-in-Law took this photo using her zoom lens..at least I'm hoping she didn't get this close to the bug. I do know that a Dragonfly doesn't sting. Growing up on Long Island, NY, we had tons of them at the beach. They were just a part of summer and when I see one, I can almost smell the ocean. I really love Katherine's photos, and she seems to know what I like to paint so we make a good team. So, here's my version of "Dragonfly".
