I just found out today that my Rainbow Dragonfly piece was accepted to the Bright Flight Exhibit that is taking place at Scarborough Arts.
Artist's Statement (Where they wanted me to explain the inspiration, the concept behind, and other explanatory details about the piece.)
Pre-cut materials save time. Magic marker saves clean up associated with paints. Easter M&M's saves my waist line those couple handfuls of chocolate. So I would have to say it all boils down to conservation. :)
As for the rainbow and the dragonfly. Don't we all take more notice of a rainbow than the clouds and a dragonfly than the birds?
