Edit: this piece is sold.

Today's original was meant for a convention art show that was recently cancelled. A gryphon contentedly reads a book while relaxing. I'm calling it "Relaxing With A Book." This gryphon has plenty of other books when it's done with the one in hand.

This piece is acrylic on turkey feather, and is accented with a yellow sapphire. The inside edge of the frame measures 5x7 inches.

If you would like to add this piece to your collection, please message me. It's $165 including shipping to the lower 48.

Today's original is called "Shadow Guardian." This friendly winged panther is here to show you the way. It's inspired by the patterns in the stone, which is jasper. The accents in the panther's necklace are citrines. The inside edge of the antiqued gilded frame measures 8x10 inches. It's a little heavy for its size because the stone is a little thicker than some that I use.

Shadow Guardian is $300 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

Today's original was painted for a convention art show that was supposed to be coming up, but the con has unfortunately been cancelled and so I am posting this piece today. It features a cat atop a pile of books, a "To Read Pile." It's a big pile, so the cat is way up there. But he's feeling like king of the hill, so it's probably best to add another book when you take one to read.

To Read Pile is acrylic on turkey feather with a ruby accent. It's a small piece- the inside edge of the frame is 4x6 inches. It's $135 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

It's taken longer than I intended to start posting new art again, but here is a new piece! I haven't titled this piece yet, but it may just be called "Good Read." If you have a title suggestion, do post it.

This contented black and blue dragon is enjoying a book. He's acrylic on white turkey feather, and has a blue sapphire accent. The frame is accented with wood books that I painted. Titles include "How To Fight Knights And Win: A Tactical Guide" by Fafnir, "Hand Book of Plunder," "A Big Big Big Book of Dragons: Facts, Stories, Interviews and Tales .. A Camelot Times Best Seller" by Smaug, "Hero Tales" by Bob, and an open book that has the following text painted using a very tiny brush. "Once you have collected your desired amount of treasure, find a hidden cave that is free of hobbit, dwarf or elf infestation. Put your whole treasure into the cave when no one is looking. Seal up all hidden entrances and do not make any maps. Do not tell anyone where it is. Also hide your books. They are also treasures."

So I managed to title the wooden books, but not the piece, go figure. 😛

The frame measures 8x10 inches on the inside edge.

This piece is $275 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

Right now I'm busy trying to get ahead so I have pieces for the convention art shows I am mailing to. I am also painting some larger pieces and pieces that I promised to people. I plan on posting new art here within a week or so, but that's what's happening now. I only have two hands, and what I could paint with one of them I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want to buy. 😛

Here are the first two convention art shows planned for October:

MileHiCon: Oct 1-3, Denver, CO https://milehicon.org/

Archon: Oct 1-3 Collinsville, IL https://archonstl.org/

I will be mailing in so I will not be at either con in person, but I will have prints (including the one pictured in this post) and originals in the art shows.

Frost Dragon Flies is framed! The inside edge of the wooden frame measures 6x13 inches. I gave the little dragonlings blue topazes and tanzanites to squabble over. I'm really happy with the way this piece turned out. It's acrylic on blue slate turkey feather.

I have one inquiry on this piece and I am waiting to hear if they would like it. If it is still available I will post. The price will be $325 including shipping to the lower 48 if it is available. EDIT: this piece is available!
