10cm (4") long
I was invited to participate in the February 2020 invitational show at North End Gallery in Leonardtown, MD. The show included a Valentine’s Day themed mini show, which I decided would be a good excuse to make a new dragon-fly. I was loath to go all out with the pink and hearts, so I kept it subtle with modified heart shapes for the wings and back markings. The colors began inspired by a gas flame, but became also smokey or sunset-like with the inclusion of purple.
Heart-Wing is made from polymer clay, with wire reinforced paper wings, and is painted with acrylics and polyurethane varnish.
