Just a notice that we've taken the Zazzle print on demand shop featuring my artwork private for now due to the new company policy of offering large high resolution preview images online with no watermarks. It was just asking for problems, and at this point, Zazzle seems uninterested in rectifying the situation. We'll be looking at other print on demand sites to find one that better meets our current needs, and if Zazzle should change the policy, we'll reopen the shop. If there is any specific item we had listed on Zazzle that you had your eye on, I can possibly work out getting it for you, just message me.

I'm not really a fan of pink, except for in stones like tourmaline. I really like that tourmaline comes in a wide array of colors that harmonize although they shouldn't, and I can get random assortments of it. In the last lot, I got a couple of pieces of blue along with the bronze, green and pink, and so I decided to celebrate that fact by painting dragons inspired by the stones. I chose a pink, a green and a blue tourmaline and then created three dragons, each comparing their tourmaline loot. They're painted in acrylic on bloodstone type jasper. Well, actually, it's a little more colorful than regular bloodstone, and echoes a lot of the colors that I used in the dragons. I posed each dragon on the part of the stone that matched it best, and used a little of the other dragons' colors on each. I matted and framed the piece in a mottled golden frame which measures 8x10 on the inside edge, and matted it in colors and textures resembling those in the stone. And of course, I gave each dragon its faceted tourmaline as an accent.

So the dilemma arose... what to call this piece? Hmmm, I wonder? Letmethink, letmethink. How about.... drumroll please, and I'm sure this will totally surprise everyone so don't be shocked..... "TOURMALINE DRAGONS!" Surprised you, didn't I?

This piece is $395 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

Edit: this piece is sold.

Today's original is titled "Ivy Faerie." A self-possessed faerie all dressed in green presides over a whole lot of ivy. She's crowned with ivy, her wings have the colors of ivy and ivy covers her magic staff, which is topped with a faceted green tourmaline. Her necklace features a small peridot cabochon.

This piece is inspired by the moss agate on which it is painted in acrylic. The rustic wood frame with a golden inner lip measures 5x7 inches on the inner edge.

Ivy Faerie is $175 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

Today's piece is called "The Collector." I think all of us can relate in one way or another.

These days, I try to keep my collecting along the lines of the practical, such as cookware or art supplies. But it does spill over, and I offer my spice shelf and minor mountain range of rock slices in my art shed as proof of my failure to completely tame these impulses. Dragons don't have to reign in any of their impulses because they are, after all, dragons, and who is going to stop them from doing whatever they like?

This golden dragon's treasure pile has gotten out of hand. It won't fit in even an extra large IKEA brand HORDR or GEMPILE chest any more. In fact, it's by default become furniture in the dragon's lair. It serves as pedestal and bed and when it gets big enough, maybe even a slide. But the dragon likes it this way and is continually adding to the pile whenever he gets a chance, regardless of the judgement of puny humans and jealousy of smaller dragons.

The Collector is acrylic on pumpkin obsidian. There is an assortment of gems in the treasure pile including peridot, amethyst, sapphire, garnet, emerald, ruby, rainbow moonstones and tourmaline. There are also a few "I don't know for sure" gems in there from a lot of mixed stones. Honestly, I painted this because I wanted to paint a treasure pile. I just need to get it out of my system now and then.

The frame for this piece measures 11x14 on the inside edge. It's $495 including shipping to the lower 48. Please message me if interested.

Here's a sneak peek at a few of the pieces I sent to Chicon8, which is this year's World Science Fiction Convention. It's the 80th Worldcon. I won't be able to be there in person, but my artwork will be in the art show. I do hope that everyone attending has a great time! https://chicon.org/

We will once again have a booth filled with art and related goodies this Friday and Saturday (August 26-27) at the Utah Renaissance Faire at Electric Park at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah. This is most likely our only in person event for 2022. If you are attending, be sure to come by and say hello! Huzzah!
