Swarm - Illustration Friday
I made this with my favorite Citra-Solv paper and some real dragonfly wings that I found while walking in the woods last summer. Two wings were just lying on the path. I have no idea what happened to the other two. The wings are now encased in acrylic medium, so they should remain protected forever.
You may be wondering why this is a swarm? It is a swarm of memories. Sometmes I find I'm overtaken by them. Are memories real or not real? They only exist in our heads. It's a facinating question.

What a cool way to preserve dragonfly wings! I love the colors and textures of this piece, and I know exactly what you mean by being overtaken by "a swarm of memories."

This is lovely, really.
Real wings? huhh. Super. My children always bring a lot of treausres like pigeon fether, stones, leaves, but I don't take these to my shelf of memory, because we have no shelf of memory. :-) We have no place for treasures. :-( Just for their first hair, teeth, shoes...
