Back to my project of painting any gifts given to me.....my friend Patty gave me a dragonfly bookmark that is very beautiful. It is too pretty to hide in a book, actually. She also gave me a bookmark from the Japenese Garden, and I took the lantern from that--I had to excercise some "artistic license." (In case you wonder, I really do have an artistic license and it is on display in the Plum Gallery.) Patty is a poet and a reader and a wonderful woman...these are so much "her," and the dragonfly acknowledges my little group of friends we call "dragonflies"--Patty is part of that. Thanks, Patty--it is so pretty!
