RAT MEETS DRAGONFLY


This Painting was done for my BIL at Christmas time. It took about three days to complete. The original painting was this same red background and branch but a raven or crow sitting on the branch. My BIL's girlfriend told me ravens and crows are back luck in her Vietnamese culture so I had to rethink the animals. Mark (BIL) was born the year of the rat and Minh (BIL's girlfriend) loves dragonfly's. Rat Meets Dragonfly was achieved!


I think it turned out okay....a little more "cute" than I would have liked but most of my stuff turns out that way. Not edgy and odd which is what I try for. I guess I need to embrace the cuteness? :)



Painting is 3' X 4' acrylic on canvas

Yes, embrace the cuteness! I like it.

If you want to add a little edgy, give the rat a tattoo!

We all need a little cuteness these days! Besides, adding the rat gave it a bit of edgeiness I think and that sky is way out there! I think it's a great piece and your BIL is lucky! Best thoughts from the brush...doris
