Moss Dragon

By ldiehl

After many many many hours more of work and re-envisioning... Two months "late" but who's counting? (I had my wedding in-between start and finish!)...I've arrived at a final painting of the Moss Dragon piece.

I love how closely it matches my original vision: warm morning sunlight, a cute little Irish gal, and dragon that looks so happy I can hear it purring. =) =) =)

The light in this is so amazing! It reminds me of carefree afternoons in my childhood, when I would sit in the middle of the yard and just enjoy the warm rays of the setting sun on my face while dreaming of things I would paint, places I would visit, people I would meet... Thank you thank you thank you for this beautiful nostalgic emotion you gave me. I featured this work on my page alongside other joyous artworks: On Top of a Flaming Eagle

Wow, talk about cuteness! The lighting in this is just so perfect, even the blue light from the water! I love the detail you give every creature in the picture, even that little mushroom on the smaller dragon's head.
