Dragonfly Finds Good and Plenty

Painted in Big Sur then it kind of vanished. I suppose I sold it the original, but I keep looking for it anyway suspecting it must have slipped into/down/behind/under something and will re-appear. I’m amazed I have a photograph.
One down side to being prolific, and I am, is that I don’t remember every single painting at once. Memory is easily jogged by the picture of the picture, indeed to revisiting the emotions and time and place it all happened. I’m very grateful for the photographs. There have been great painting lulls in my life too…but not the last decade. I am busily at it.
Part of thrilling stimulation of living in Big Sur is the barage of sensation coming at you from every direction affecting all sensibilities. So that’s just to say why this looks like it does. Frazzled by color, transported by living.
Well, no, I mean that describes me. The dragonfly is doing nicely in all this. I do not know how insects manage. I have yet to see bug or bird stopped in its tracks in front of something so spectacular in colors they just pass out mid-air. Well, I mean again, that describes me. Happens all the time.
