Acrylic on Canvas – October 2015

While riding around enjoying the fall leaves I saw a tree that I felt looked like a dragon. I can only describe it as the childhood game where you look at the clouds and try to find pictures.. Only with trees. With the fall green, yellow, oranges and reds in the tree it instantly reminded me of my favorite red dragon – Mushu. I’m a big Mulan fan. Painting this one was certainly different from an earlier blue dragon piece that I painted. I wanted this one to be less of an outline though and a bit more three dimensional while still holding onto the colorful “asian dragon” that I had seen so often in old historical buildings in Korea. In looking at the disney movie, it’s a cute little dragon voiced by Eddie Murphy. It’s comical and not the least bit scary. And yet, if you were followed around by a dragon do you think it would actually be like that? I think it would be a bit more like this.
