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
