Artwork Description

I saw a painting in Patrick McEvoy's gallery that intrigued me. It was a wonderful blending of reality and fantasy. It inspired this one. This is done on masonite with acrylic. It is 8" x 10".

Thats amazing how you have created so much detail in such a small work space.
An incredible feat. The composition
gives it such a large feeling!

Thanks Sean. I've been doing some work lately that is trying to blur the border between fantasy and reality: that is placing fantastical creatures in common, everyday places.

Thank you, Anthony. I've been painting miniatures for a long time now. I actually enjoy the challenge.

This is my favorite of all your paintings so far. I love the 'restrained' composition of the dragons, it's quite a brave move to keep them that small but it really works and the piece wouldn't be a spowerful any other way.
The painting has a very 'oriental' feel in my eyes - awesome work!!

Thanks Marley. I wanted an ordinary scene to have fantastical creatures in it. I like blending the real with the "unreal".
