Today's original is for people who love the color purple. It's called "Purple Star."

This piece started with a turkey feather and a very purple frame- the brown in the feather matched the brown under the weathered finish of the purple wooden frame. I painted a dragon fly in shades of purple and gave it a treasure accented with a tourmaline, a rhodolite garnet and an amethyst. I gave the frame metal corners to give it a less rustic and more fanciful appearance in order to tie the whole piece together. You should have seen me carefully hammering away on the frame, just like a cobbler out of a fairy story. Hopefully no brownies or elves saw me doing it and there won't be fairy tale like implications. I lost a little nail in the carpet, and I do need to go vacuum to make sure that I don't find it later by stepping on it.

Purple Star loves purple. If you love purple too and would like to have this piece, please message me. It's $165 including shipping to the lower 48.

Today's original features a golden dragon that is enjoying a book. The light is fading and he's angled the book to take advantage of the last of it, which is why this piece is called "Catching the Light." Soon it will be time to put down the book and then to eat dinner (which consists of two whole hams and a keg of beer.) Never fear, there are lamps and the reading will continue after dinner.

Catching the Light is acrylic on two turkey wing feathers. The dragon has a dark faceted garnet on his necklace. The inside edge of the ornate gold frame measures 8x12 inches.

This piece is $375 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

I am recovering from a very long hike which we took yesterday, and so I will be posting new art tomorrow instead of today.... because I haven't even managed to mat the new piece. So rather than forge ahead and mat, I will re-post a piece from last year that I still have and which still needs a home.

"Shadow Guardian" is friendly, and is here to lead the way. It's inspired by the patterns on the jasper slab upon which it is painted. The accents are citrine. I chose a heavy gilded wood frame that measures 8x10 inches on the inside edge.

This piece is $300 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

Today's original is called "Cloud Dancer." It's a small piece- the inside edge of the frame measures just 4x6 inches. It's a dapple grey pegasus, cavorting in a grey cloud. It has fancy trappings studded with two faceted amethysts and a small tourmaline.

I chose the lacquered hardwood frame because it nearly matches the color of the grey turkey feather the piece is painted on. I added metal corners to add some interest to the frame and tie the piece together.

Cloud Dancer is $145 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

This will be the last piece I plan on posting until Thursday.

I don't have a new available original for today, but I do have an upcoming con to announce. I will have original artwork (including the pictured piece,) prints and assorted goodies in the art show and print shop at Norwescon next weekend. I will not be attending and my participation will be by mail in. If you are attending, do have a fabulous time!

Today's original is called "Pearl Seeker." Usually when I paint eastern dragons, they are seeking a gem which is only called a Pearl of Wisdom. But this silvery dragon is chasing a literal cultured pearl! It's acrylic on stone- a black stone with some sort of grey inclusions, which don't really show in the finished piece. It seems basaltic, but I'm really not sure. There is a subtle texture on the surface caused by the cutting blade... so this stone has mysteries. We don't even know what it is!

Pearl Seeker is fixated on the pearl. The goal is within reach, but mysteries remain. I think this black, white and silver dragon is comfortable with the mysteries. Maybe that's part of the wisdom it seeks.

Pearl Seeker is presented in a pearly silver frame which measures 5x7 inches on the inside edge. It's $165 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.
