Blue Dragonfly
Blue Dragonfly

My wives friend wanted a wall hanging of a Blue Dragonfly with an 18inch wingspan on a shabby/aged background.
So this is what I came up with, the Dragonfly is 3D engraved out of Maple and dyed turquoise blue.
The frame is white pine with a crackle finished white "milk paint" and a semi-gloss lacquer top coat.
The dragonfly body is post mounted about 1inch off the back with the tail pinned to the back so it sets at an angle (can't see it in the photo) to give it some depth.


The photo was taken 6 months after our sons death. We were in the back yard talking about him (and how much we miss him) when this amazing creature flew in an landed begging for a photo to be taken. I was within 3 inches of it and it never moved until I was satisfied I had the right shot then it flew off. It seams amazing that whenever we talk or are thinking of Jeremiah a dragonfly appears. People that have seen this photo up close say that it appears the Dragonfly is smiling.

The frame(#11)window size 11x14 is redwood w/ a natural Danish Oil finish. The simple design and the natural orange of the wood was a perfect fit for this photo. The picture does not represent it properly (ya, again) but the double mat is actually two shades of green that matches the background of the photo.

It has become my wife's second favorite after the mothers day rose.

The photo was taken by a friend and printed to canvas, she wanted it framed for my wife.
Macacauba fit the color of the dragonfly quite well.

frame(53) window size 16x20 is pine painted Distressed Shabby Chic with a satin lacquer top coat
The butterflies are floating and sit just shy of 1/2" off the backing. A large 1/2" rabbit was created to space the art for them to float under the glass creating a mini-shadow box effect.
The mat is white with green core, v-grooving revealed the green lines and was used to fill the large white space.
