|Dragonfly Heaven by Adriana Meiss|
I am so happy to have finished this painting that for months sat on a shelf in the studio. A dead tree in the middle of the pond had kept me from working on this one. I debated whether to move it to the right or to the left, making it the focal area or to not include it at all. As I remembered the day I was at this location and how at peace I felt listening to the insects and the wind I realized that the dead tree wasn't important; all it needed was a mood that invited the viewer to be there. I hope it will strike such feeling in people.
This is on Rondaxe Road, Old Forge, NY. The road divides the pond in two, so there are nice views on both sides.
