Impressions of Summer
Heat and bugs are the essence of summer in my state. I wanted to capture summer's fiery warmth with this mixed media collage while providing a nod to dragonflies, one of my favorite "bugs." There's a small water garden alongside my porch where these beautiful creatures congregate. It's great fun to watch them hover over the water, then zip off into the garden. My environment provides many little inspirations like this for my art. I find such moments to be some of the most rewarding when I'm looking for something to jump start a painting.
