Dragonfly on 1890's Dictionary Page
5" x 6.5"
I am in love with this old dictionary and I have so many ideas for new drawings. The pages are beautiful and the definitions are from another world. This page has the headings Dowry and Drawing-Room and defines a dragonfly as a insectivorous insect: a mosquito hawk. I think this unique, antique book is going to be cherished for years to come.
Dragonflies have been very good to me. My first sale in Santa Fe, NM was a dragonfly drawing. I plan to put this little guy in a lovely frame and find him a new home at the Festival of the Arts in Oklahoma City next month.
