Oil Paint on Bamboo Board
6.7" x 12.7"
Though I have finished many new art pieces previous to this one and have yet to share them with you, I thought I would start with my newest piece as it was specially made for my beautiful/unique/awesome little sister's 24th birthday present. I chose to do my own representation of Rene Lalique's "Femme-libellule" (Dragonfly Woman) because Meagan and I had the pleasure of seeing the corsage ornament in real life at the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian in Lisbon, Portugal. To see photos of the museum and the original dragonfly please click HERE. It was also an obvious choice because Meg has a fondness for dragonflies and even has a tattoo of one on her calf. I hope she enjoys her present and I hope you enjoy it too! Happy Birthday Meagan!
