Dragonflies are honoured in many cultures. They represent change, self-realization and understanding of the deeper meaning of life. They remind us that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose to do so. They represent awareness and gratitude of inner and outer beauty, and ability to share it modestly with the world. In Ireland and parts of Europe, they are associated with fairies, tales that evoke images of magic.
The dragonfly’s wings have been created using silk fusion, hand dyed, stitch and embroidered by me. It is a very creative process that I cherish, as it transports me into a different realm. Their iridescence, their beauty fascinate me throughout the summer season .
Ice Cream Day – Dragonflies
Hot summer days and ice cream afternoons.
Ever so gentle movement and shimmer of grass stems and dragonflies.
Green Maples .
Flight and play within Nature.
The long “golden” days of summer. Hot and still. Light breeze.
The smooth ripples of a lake lit in Sun. Bright and pleasant afternoons.
Ever so graceful.
The colours are exquisite.
