This very distinctive LifeExpressions commission was created for a very special person. I immediately thought of the dragonfly for this particular commission and incorporated it as the main part of the circle art since I had also designed this person's dragonfly tattoo. My intuition guided me throughout the painting and I also added several free-form design elements around the circle. Also notice a small, stylized dragonfly in the center of the circle and outside the circle are smaller stylized dragonflies surrounding the larger circle.
Dragonflies symbolize transformation, adaptability and change. It is also a sign of self-realization and understanding the deeper meaning of life. I used purples, greens, oranges and yellows as the colors for this LifeExpressions commission.
This piece was created in archival and acrylic inks, both waterproof. LifeExpressions commissions are painted on an 8"x8" (unless another size is determined, but they are always square) cradled substrate that is archival and acid-free. The finished painting is protected with several coats of satin (low-sheen) acrylic polymer varnish which is resistant to chemicals, water, abrasion and ultraviolet radiation. I paint the sides of the cradled panel with an acrylic color that compliments the colors in the painting. Cradled panels allow you to hang your work with no additional framing. I also include a hanging hook and nail for your convenience.
NOTE: Please do not hang your fine art painting in direct sunlight. The painting is non-repairable if it is accidentally scratched or marred in any way. Lightly dust off occasionally with a cotton cloth and nothing else.
