At least a year ago I saw the Dragon boat art show on facebook through friends. It looked amazing! I had missed any deadline to apply but fell in love with the theme and became fascinated with the boats too! Fast forward a year and I see the Dragon Boat Art show pop up again…but this time, the deadline is just a few days away- I thought, Darn! close but no cigar! I’ll have to wait till next year- but then– the deadline was extended- I had another shot at it! I wasted no time and got right to work.

YES! I jumped right in. I knew I saw the dragon and I DID.First dragon (really!) even though I love myth and magic and have been exposed to them all my life.

As the painting progressed, the dragon grew gnarly and powerful…

Early stages

 

I decided to hand build the frame. I did a float mount- and a nice black lacquer molding- about 1 3/4″ thick. I turned out great! I can’t wait to keep building out frames for my work- it felt so polished and finished. Heres a look…

Finished and framed!
