If you follow me on Facebook, you may have read my post a few
days ago about shipping out my very last dragonfly order.
This cool zebra dragonfly...one of my personal favorite
patterns that I've made... flew off to Massachusetts.
I've decided to move on from recycled art and dragonfly making
and concentrate on ideas I have floating around in my head
that I want to apply to canvas paintings.
For now I will still be making my mermaids and mosaics too but
may phase the mermaids out as well... who knows! :)
I created these table leg dragonflies almost 10 years ago
but first blogged about them about 5 years ago when I came
up with the idea to use old ceiling fan blades for the wings.
When my ceiling fan blades ran out, I cut the wings out of wood
and added butterflies to the mix as well.
Prior to that, I sold my table leg dragonflies locally and made wings using
wire, then wrapped in hand painted canvas. This was way before
digital cameras and before documenting my pieces ever crossed my mind!
I've made wings using fan blades, wood, metal, wrapped wire,
glass beads, shells, stained glass and molding.
I've painted zebra designs, leopard, giraffe and peacock feathers.
Colorful ones, vintage looking, simple, stripes, dots, leaves,
fleur de lis, graffiti inspired, flags and even like a Mardi Gras mask
and one out of a croquet mallet!
I've shipped them all over the country and overseas.
A quick calculation shows I've created and sold well over 300
and I have loved creating each and every one of them
and I thank you for your support over the
years in purchasing my art dragonflies!
I thought it would be fun to put together a few collages of
just some of the past designs I've made over the years.
