A bottomless pot?
Errr....

I don't think I am ever leaving....

Dragons can get very deep, especially if you can feel the essence within you.
Channeling the inner dragon so to speak.
You know you are on it when a moral is produced,
as that is what dragons do.

I personally believe there are dragons,
things that live out there..

Glad you like it. It was a quick drawing. I did several quick dragon drawings and was going to do a series of paintings out of them, but have not yet. I've only painted one dragon so far, and it wasn't based on any of the drawings.

Syx...Pfffft! Just because your story is 'dark'...doesn't mean it's not great! It is great. Some of us like dark stuff, lol.


Darkblade...Aww, yeah...I like to believe they're out there somewhere too. Even when I was little, and the other girls wanted a unicorn...hahaha....I wanted a dragon.

I always wanted to draw well. But am a bit of wanting instant results. Not patient enough I guess. My Mom and Sister were very good drawers.
I would love to see the painting sometime!!!

Thank you,
it turned out ok, but I am probably my own worst critic.
That is only the 3rd painting I have done in many years.
I'm working on another now, but it doesn't have dragons,
it's got jumping salmon and a swooping raven on it so far.
I'm trying out painting different things.

Good coffee!

Wow...that is beautiful! What did you use?

Syx...you draw well too! I draw, but used to only do portraits, never tried a dragon.

Everyone here is creative...musicians, craftspersons, artists, WRITERS, lol. C'mon, face it...we got it going on!!!

Acrylic paints.
Cheap walmart stuff.

I don't have the patience for oil paints.
I can't wait 6 months for something to dry.

hahaha...yeah, but acrylics dry so fast! My father used to paint with oils, but I never liked them myself.

Back in high school, I did an acrylic of KISS onstage at a concert, taken from a photograph. My teacher HATED it, but had to give me an 'A' cuz it was well done.

Yep, I have a hard time with the paints and probably waste more than I use cause they dry so fast.
That is where I learned how to paint was in high school.
The teachers bought every one I did.
Kind of weird...

lol

I had not painted in years, but wanted to try again, and since I have been drawing my whole life, it became a very easy skill to remember from high school although the focus is totally different now.

I remember one of the girls in art class did a HUGE painting of a dragon off of a Dragons of Pern book cover and I was just blown away by it. This thing was 6 feet tall and 4 feet wide. We had to make all of our own canvases and frames and I can't imagine having to make that one.

Most of what I learned was from high school art too. Some of my teachers asked to keep some of my stuff. I did take a couple of evening classes later in life, just for my own enjoyment.

We once had a guest artist who worked with clay on a wheel. He made a perfect vase, then destroyed it. I always remember...he told us never to get attached to any one piece we create...always know that you can make another.

I haven't tried to draw for years now, and most everything I've done has been given to others. I sometimes wish I still had a couple of pieces...I think my eyes are too crappy to be good again now.

That is something I struggle with, my eyesight.

I'm near sighted, but now I need bifocals cause I can't see close up either.
It gets kind of funny when I work on a painting and I have to look at it with and without my glasses as I do it because I can't see the details if I have my glasses on.

I hate that part of getting older...lol

---------------------------
TrueBrit,
Thanks!
Glad you think it looks good!
Looks better in person, the picture doesn't pick up the elements of shadows and depth. Some of it actually almost pops off the canvas at you.
