Gold Dragonfly & Welcome Swallows
by Stirling ArtRegular price$295.00 Sale price$350.00
This dragonfly painting is in bright bold red, orange, yellow, limes and metallic golds. There is some iridescence in this painting too, which you only see in certain lights, a bit like the glint and shine of the pretty colours of the dragonfly.
I absolutely love big dragonflies and how they seem to appear out of nowhere and hover almost robotically. It’s as though they’re checking things out before disappearing in the blink of an eye. Dragonflies are literal precision flying machines, and ferocious predator of pesky mosquitoes. Not only that, but dragonflies are sensitive indicators of freshwater health.
In the background of this painting there are motifs of welcome swallow birds flying. I love it in summer when I watch flocks of swallows’ swoop around Plimmerton, and I suddenly notice a dragonfly mirroring my movements like an alien bionicopter. Nature’s magic really does sometimes seem otherworldly, and I hope I’ve captured that in this painting.
Universally, dragonflies are symbols of change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. In some cultures, dragonflies represent good luck or prosperity. So, make a wish when you see a dragonfly and maybe all your wildest dreams will come true.
Long live the stunning dragonfly.

The artworks are finished in a UV resistant resin which gives it that glass like finish. However, for longevity it’s best not to place this painting, or any artwork, or even humans or animals in direct UV / sunlight.
All multimedia work is created using top quality materials and arrives ready to be hung, with hanging hardware already attached to the back. But should you wish to professionally frame – you can do that too.
Full disclosure: The artworks, like the artist, are not perfect. I have a Siberian Husky dog called Sasquatch and some loose strands of fur may be forever immortalized in your painting, although I can’t guarantee that either!
That said, I want you to be 100% happy with your painting and I understand that buying art online can be challenging. So, I offer a 7-day return policy.
