I'm a Fire Dragon, too (but I have very little Chinese blood in me). A pure Chinese friend of mine told me that Fire Dragons are extremely lucky people. Though I don't feel very lucky myself, you, obviously, are. Smile

Well, I do have 11x17 prints of this one available on my website. Afraid I can't do 2 foot ones though!

Your ability to capture light by sealing the darks is incredible in it's complexity. The nouveau wisps and the rothko-like ability to stack colors with ease begs for attention. I adore your work and I would plaster my walls with their splendor if only they were larger. A 2 ft. poster would make me immensely happy, especially with this pictures. Is it possible or am I chasing dreams?

Your art constitutes some of the most incredibly beautiful work I have ever seen. I especially enjoy your skill with the watercolor brush-amazing! This print in particular was one I wanted to comment upon, as I love dragons-my birthdate is actually 6/14/'88 [Year of the Dragon]-and the beauty exhibited here is beyond words. Thank you so much for all of your work!

Fabulous. The woman looks like she is in a T'ai Chi form. The dragon is stunning, but I think my favourite parts are the woman, the night sky, and the light that surrounds her.

Beautiful. Now I see why it's so strict on policies here! I could never dream of making something this nice, but it's something to strive for.

haven't looked for a while, liiks like you're making progress all the time Smile (even if it's hard to track).
overall composition of it is great, so iconlike or sth.
if I had a city, I'd hire u to make all the statues Wink

As with all of your work, this piece is simply *magical*. I really can´t understand how you can colour like that... the attention to detail and the beautiful composition are to die for!

Guest's picture

Wow. That's actually what I always say on seeing your art, but wow. I think this may be my favorite. And not because I was born in the year of the dragon. ;D

puimun's picture

Thanks! I've got some ideas for Horse....

puimun's picture

Me too! =)

Haven't decided which is next! It'll have to wait for a little while because I've got a bunch of projects with deadlines on my plate for the next month, so we'll see which animal catches my fancy by the time I'm free again.

puimun's picture

I hope so too. =) I seem to have problems following through on series projects though. At least, when I'm doing it for myself, and not on commisison.

Wonderful, as allways!

I´ll never stop to marvel at the beautiful work you do with watercolours!
I really hope you´ll do the other signs too, hope to see the Horse, my sign.

your humble admirerer.

Beautiful blend of drawing and design!

Guest's picture

Gorgeous! It really has a lovely, sinuous quality...perfect for a dragon. So Snake is next, correct? Not like that is a hint or anysuch...
