New painting

“A painting is never finished. It simply stops in interesting places.” – Paul Gardner

This is true about my latest watercolor painting, entitled Dragonfly. I decided to let the background remain purple, instead of adding additional layers as I originally intended. The painting is based on a photograph taken at Glen Lake, in the Adirondacks, last autumn. The dragonfly was a surprise that I did not even notice, until I enlarged the photo to look carefully when I began my original sketch.
