    This piece was inspired primarily by two things. The first was a dream I had about a dragonfly turning into a woman. The second was a Japanese folktale called \"Dragonfly Millionaire\", about a poor farmer and his wife who were led by a dragonfly to a spring of rice wine, and a stream filled with gold dust. In my picture, the dream and my folktale are fused; a woman who is either the farmer\'s wife from the folktale, the dragonfly woman from my dream, or some combination of both, reclines by the gold dust river. Her hand is outstretched to permit a dragonfly to perch. As the dragonfly woman, she is communing with a kindred spirit; as the farmer\'s wife, she is expressing her gratitude to the generous dragonfly.
