Maybe they are fire lizards (from Anne McCaffreys Dragonrider books).

This is a fun piece.  The parental instinct, the well thought out anatomy, the motion conveyed in the flight of the dragonfly.  I think part of the scale point you cite on another comment is the size of leaves and the wood texture, as well as the distant dragons which would have to be quite large to appear at that range.  Despite, I love the piece and your work in general!  Thanks for this!

Either that's a really big dragonfly or those are really small dragons. Either way, I would love to see both!

Thanks to that piece, I learned a lot of things about scale because I realized I needed to be more explicit about it in my paintings, a dragonfly isn't enough to tell people that those dragons are tiny.

Yeah, I think it's only beicause people know about giant, prehistoric dragon flies, so it could go either way. I guess if you put a lady bug, it wouldn't have been a question! ;) Either way, I wasn't intentionally critiquing - I love the piece as is and it is still obvious that they are tiny dragons - dragonflies only get SO big! :D Excited to see more of your work!
