Dragonflies, interpreted

The skies have been full of dragonflies since early summer. By late July the beauties are about: the reds, the lime greens and the large blues. I have yet to see the heavy blacks that look like they are carrying extra packs.
I really wanted to see what I could do in my new found art of watercolor.

When a good friend saw my little painting, she suggested putting it on a hat. So I painted a fly on my only plain ball cap. Of course the fabric and the fabric paints do not allow the detail of the watercolor, but it is a fun look. I think I may get some more plain caps and paint them up!
