This artwork was inspired by the name of the dragonfly insect. This little creature highly magical, it lives near water and loves to fly in the moonlight.

Holy crap, I have a card with this! And the clock with the elf and the little dragon in the water.
Totally adding you to my watch now!

I love this so so so much. I had come across another artist who did a dragonfly like this, but I don't believe it had color. And I absolutely love the tons used with fantasy paintings... such as this purple. <3 I also love all your paintings of dragons... and thinking of a word where what if our smaller creatures resembled them more.. like some lizards and insects. Or even house pet sized ones. I love seeing different takes other than the strong beast who needs to be slayed.

I stumbled across your work on here and when I got to this piece I realized I'd bought a little jewelry box with this art on the top last year for my fiancee :) go figure...! Great work by the way!

I really like this dragon's wings. They're quite intricate, and although at first glance they look like butterfly wings, you create the illusion of scales. Epic as always.

Oh I simply adore this :heart: I bought the tube top with this design on it from Spiral...if only I lived somewhere a bit warmer I could wear it more often...but anyway, everything about this is stunning - so much that it makes me want to get up and do a bit of a mad dance. :D :+fav:

As every picture of dragons that you've done, I love this! Your dragon-pictures are the bests that I know.
What I think about this one, is that it's beautiful and somehow mysterious, which makes me like it even more.

Keep up the good work^^
