Dragonfly Muse ©Morri (sold)
acrylic on canvas
ancient of days,
catcher of light.
This painting, like many of mine do, went through changes. It was titled Water Lilies II and was just that..second in a series of water lilies.
A couple saw it in one of my shows and she felt a connection to this piece. So it was reserved, by her husband, for a birthday present for her.
beyond that–the story, as there always is…
The painting hung in the same spot in my home gallery.. before the show and after. I am quite fond of water lilies..and all that circles in and out of that world. So I enjoyed painting this..and then stepping into it when I passed by. Alas, I always felt something was missing. When the birthday was nearing I decided to talk to the client about my thoughts. I told him I wanted to add something..and he gave me complete freedom to do as I wished. I visited the waterlilies around our docks and I knew…dragonfly. (That led me to researching their history and symbolic meaning).

Dragonfly muse, indeed.
Added Post Note: Unbelievable how much time has passed since I last visited here and left a few words..such good intentions on my part! I am continuously making changes in my life to free up time & rid myself of negative energies.
Life is wonderfully busy…and so very very sweet! I feel no hurried pressures..allowing all to unfold when and if it is meant to be. It will be interesting to see how these new life chapters are written. Let it begin…I’lI have a brush in hand.
I hope to return soon. Until then…
Ps As noted in a comment below..this unfinished post was an accident. Yet..maybe not. :)
